I just installed an extra 16GB of memory and ran into an unexpected problem with my Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium system - my version of windows won't recognize more than 16GB of memory.
I didn't realize that until today, because it wasn't really mentioned in all of Microsoft's Windows 7 version comparisons. It was in the details, which weren't relevant for me at the time.
Anyway, my question to the forums is:
Is there a way to bypass the 16GB memory limitation without upgrading?
I know Windows 8 doesn't have that limit, so, alternatively, how (awful) is Windows 8 to use on a daily basis, and for running WoW?
Thanks in advance!
PS: I got the extra memory because it was cheap, and more memory = more fun. Upgrading to Windows 7 pro would be fine at $20, but not at $90 (which is more than what I paid for the extra memory).
