I know that it can be done by taking a file from win 2k3 server and mod it to place it in xp, but thats all I know!

How can I do it?

Side note: PAE doesnt work in sp2 (it works but there is a hard-coded barrier from M$ that still doesnt allow you the >4gb usage)

Just update the system to Service Pack 3. Service Pack 2 leaves the system vulerable to all sorts of attacks. –  Ramhound Oct 22 '12 at 15:00
    
I am not here to discuss this. I posted the question, if you know then answer. Also sp3 has althis barrier too. So all those who put a negative in my question, answer it instead of being cocky! –  vampm Oct 22 '12 at 15:08

Try this: Physical Address Extension - PAE Memory and Windows

I know about this, but it seems that even if you enable it in sp2, it doesnt work. –  vampm Oct 22 '12 at 14:37
    
Physical Address Extension as mentioned by @alexus is what is required. Period. 32-bit Windows is only capable of addressing up to 3.75 GB worth of RAM. PAE is a 'hack' that Microsoft created to allow the CPU to address additional memory. –  UtahJarhead Oct 22 '12 at 15:04
