M90p & Windows 7 64-bit - How much Hardware Reserved ram?

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?
