This information is a bit misleading.
You can indeed install 2x 8GB into your x201. And possibly even see in Win32bit, however it WONT work in Win64. I tried at least 5 different memory manufacturers and they all have same issues with x201s - windows 64x never starts, reinstall does work etc. A pity though

Are you saying that you have 2x 8GB sticks and you can start Win 64 without BSOD's and it shows up as 16GB and the system is stable? That contradicts with Intel specs.
Can you please give me the precise model name of your Patriot sticks?

Well, in the meanwhile I have bought the Patriot 16GB Kit - PSD316G1333SK to no avail. The memory is behaving same like other 5 types I tried. The system sees it, but Windows 7 64Bit does not start at all.
So I guess it is safe to make a conclusion that in case of x20x the 16GB is not supported in 64bit memory. The example of other chipset supporting 8GB does not work here because in that case you could put it ANY 4x 2 SODIMMs and it worked. Here at least 5 types of memory didnt. I doubt it is up to a very specific type of memory as of those 5 I tried they had different specs.
Guess its time for a new x230..

I wonder if this is an OS issues. If Win 32bit can see it and run, and the computer boots it sounds like the chipset supports it. Kromulator, what version of Win 7 x64 bit are you running? Lead_org, what version are you running?
I know starter & home basic only support 8GB of RAM, but I would imagine Kromulator has home premium or better.

Have you had a chance to check your Modules specs/part number?
I have done a deep research in whether there are any notebooks models with L640 or LM640 i7 that supported 16GB and could not find a single case of 16GB working in 64bit OS without any issues. Can you maybe put on full specs of your config please?
