Last night I installed a Windows 7 Professional version for a Student friend and for some reason it's not using all the 16GB of the machine. By using I mean it states only 8GB is usable.
The version was installed from the MSDN Academy Alliance and is a X64 version. Is there any reason why only 8GB would be usable. It's a brand new machine so it's possible it might not be configured in the BIOS (but it does say 16.0GB (8.0GB Usable).
Anybody have any ideas why this can be the case?
[Edit] Apologies, should have put 64 Bit OS. My mistake.
