I have a M90p with 5 GB ram installed. However, I just have Windows 7 32 installed (doh) and thus the Resource Monitor says there are 2.2 GB ram reserved. I'm wondering how much RAM will be reserved if I switch to Win 7 64. Does anyone have any experience with this?

With Windows 7 32bit you will only be able to use 4GB or (3.44 GB actually Useable) but with Windows 7 x64 you should be able to use all 5GB but normally Hardware reserved means that the ram is installed in a non properly configuration and based on 5GB and not 4, you have an extra stick of ram that doesn't match the rest. But I have seen of ways to make it usable by following the following instruction's
