Dual boot xp and linux maximum memory Tags: Linux RAM Dual Boot Windows XP Last response: September 2, 2010 6:22 AM in Windows XP Share Doug_68 September 1, 2010 10:36:03 PM I've bought a new motherboard, and will install 8GB of RAM. I'll install a 64bit linux OS on it, but would like to dual boot with 32 bit WindowsXP for usage of old windows programs. -Will XP run and just not recognize/ignore the additional ram? Or will I have to limit the system to 4G? thanks.

Alternatively, if your Windows programs aren't too demanding, running XP in a VM such as VirtualBox might be a more satisfactory solution. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
