I saw some already asked if its possible to install more than max. specified RAM capacity. I want to go a bit further.
I have a laptop (Vaio VPCF11C5e) with currently 2x4GB 1066Mhz installed. According to ark.intel.com this is the maximum - as well DDR3-1066 as 8GB. I want to put one (or two) 8GB SoDimms in there. (As far as I know single 8GB SoDimms have at least 1333Mhz)
In the end I don´t want to get a faster Ram or more of it - I want to use the additionally Ram as a Ramdisk. So the CPU will have only 8GB Ram to deal with, but will have to address 16GBs Ram. (as ark.intel.com says, the Physical Address Extensions is 36bits which would be 64GB)
The biggest problem I see would be the configuration of the Ramdisk and/or booting generally with too much ram.
Does anybody have exerience with this issue - or did I make a mistake?
