    64 bit Vista Memory

    64 bit Vista will not install if more than 2 megs of memory is installed.
    Must install over 2 megs of memory after 64bit Vista is installed.

    What are your system specs? It may be incompatible RAM or mis-configured
    BIOS.

    Go to the mobo manufacturer's website and determine which brands and speeds
    of ram have been tested, especially if you are attempting to use pc6400
    memory. Also, use the forum on the mobo manufacturer's website for your
    mobo and get some advice. This is a common issue relating to pc6400 ram,
    use of the fourth dimm slot, and timings. There is also a MS patch but that
    is not a panacea for not using supported ram.

    You mean gig, not megs right? 8^) I have 8 GB RAM installed
    on an Intel DG965WH motherboard and had no trouble at all
    installing Vista 64 Ultimate. There is an issue with my Hauppauge
    PVR-500 card where the 64-bit drivers aren't working right yet with
    the maximum memory a motherboard can take but other than that,
    no problem.

    Check your motherboard maker's Website. On some boards,
    all four RAM sockets can't be filled. On others (like mine) you
    have to use slower than the max RAM speed the motherboard
    allows when adding over a certain amount.
