Hi, put simply "you cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" 32 bit OS will be able to use a Max of 4gb the OS itself will keep (depending on whats installed and hardware) up to 1gb of this , so typically you will have 3.2 - 3.5 of Ram. Now this is adequate for most users If you wish to utilize more ram, then 64 bit OS is available, however you will not find any performance difference between 64 bit and 32 bit unless your setup requires it AND is set to use it.

Yeah, the above posters are correct. But, I'll explain it a little bit better :

If you're OS is 32-bit (or x86-bit, same thing) you're limited to only 3.2GBs of ram, and if you're OS is a 64-bit you're limited to 128GBs, I believe. But, there's hardware issues related and you're processor plays a role in it.

For more information, you could check here :
Difference Between 32 Bit (x86) and 64 Bit (x64)
32-Bit Windows and 4GB of RAM

HTH.

Once again, thanks for PMing me and not directly asking me to solve you problem - and just giving me the link to this thread. Kudos for reading the rules.

Hi Windy, as an old experienced "picker" try to put nothing smaller then your elbow into your nose and your nose into your ear, this way you will never embarrass yourself in public.

"

If it's "starting normal", then what's wrong? Have you tried to install from your explorer, and NOT trying to boot install?

Yes i tried to install it from The install of the Files but it doesn't run's to install
because i think ''my system is with x84 / 32bit '' and i cant install or run it from Desktop the 64Bit''


Why it doesnt works?

Step by step what i am doing.


1.putting the DVD
2.Restarting Computer
3.Press Esc for Boot menu
4.choosing CDDVD To first
5.waiting...
6.Some noize from CD its doing like '' boot ITs workin''
but after about ... hmm 15 Seconds ''Computer starts normal and no BOOT ''

I dont know what is the problem i tried everything i think
But maybe i missed something :)

WOW - I just had a brain freeze; I actually thought you could install a x64-bit OS through the explorer on a x86-bit OS.

Anyways, are you actually setting CD-ROM/DVD-ROM mode or are you just temporarily doing it? - Like, does it actually take you into the BIOS or just display the boot options?
