We have a situation where one of our customers is running Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition 32bit with 8 GBs of physical RAM. Upgrading to Windows Server 2008 64bit is not an immediate option (although I wish it were). All the documentation about SQL Server
2008 Workgroup edition indicates that the new version will address 4 GBs of memory however it does not distinguish between 32bit vs 64bit.
Previously we have run SQL Workgroup 2005 under Windows 2003 and have applied the /3gb switch in boot.ini to get SQL to recognize the maximum amount of memory possible. Now that we are using SQL 2008 with the /pae switch, do we need to still specify the
/3gb switch or can SQL 2008 32bit actually see more than the 3GBs and address 4? I haven't been able to find any information on this configuration.
This machine had sql server 2008 installed. I removed it since the upgrade would not work. The machine currently doesn't have any sql installs. The error fails during the Setup Support Files step. Any
help on this would be greatly appreciated. I've included last part of file since you can only include 60k chars here.
