Hi guys,

I have 2 Windows on my computer: Win Server 2008 (64 bit) and WinXP SP2 (32 bit). I am using 2GB of RAM.

Now I want to install 2 GB more to the computer so that it has 4GB in total, because the Windows Server 2008 requires more memory. I know that the WinXP will just recognize 3GB at max, but I don't need it recognize more. My concern is that will it cause damages to my RAM when I run the WinXP, or maybe the WinXP will not be stable?

Thank you,

Yes, it's safe. In fact, I've heard one of the member here said that he's doing it. With only an XP of course. ;P
