comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
Nah, that still doesn't work... same behavior as if explorer was running as regular user... "Access denied" on everything.

comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
Curiouser and curiouser... I tried adding the user to "D" drive with full control rights, and it started going through the D drive, directory by directory, telling me "Access denied"! Something tells me I need to run the "Properties" box with admin rights! Any idea how to do that?

comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
Hey, @AviD, nice to see you here! Pardon my ignorance - I'm more a software guy than hardware - how exactly do you add a user to the ACL? If you're talking about right-clicking "Properties" on the D drive and selecting "Security" - my "Administrators" group (of which my user is a member) already has full access to the drive. Is there somewhere else to setup the ACL?

@the_drow: that contradicts what @Zack is saying here - that even Win7 32-bit cannot handle more than 3GB. According to you, why can my Win7 x86 VM not handle 4GB?

Is that limitation only for virtual machines? When I had Win XP (32 bit) on my main machine, it was using all 4 GB...?

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
After a little more stress testing it turns out, as you suggested, that one of the memory sticks was defective. It might just have needed a little of extra time to complete its stress test, but this morning I came in to find a BSoD waiting for me. I clearly narrowed it down to one defective memory stick, so I guess the answer points should belong to you... :)

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
@Axidos - totally weird. I'm sure I tried this before, but I decided to try again: I put my new memory in the yellow channels and the old in the red channels. Now my system is working perfectly - with 8GB! The only difference from before is that previously I had the memory sticks in the opposite colored slots i.e. old in yellow, new in red... not sure why that's make a difference. So seeing as your is the suggestion that seems to have made the difference, you get the answer credit! Maybe now you can leave comments! ;)
