EDIT 1: Well, I moved my RAM around and booted into my old Windows 7 install and Windows is using all 12GB of RAM. Now for formatting my SSD without using the crappy Windows format utility.
So I just got my OCZ Vertex III 60GB SSD along with 12GB of RAM. I installed the RAM and booted into Windows 7 to find that Windows sees 12GB of RAM but only 6GB of it is usable. My old set of Memory is DDR3-1600MHz, which is the same as my new set. However the timings on my new set are slightly slower (9-9-9-24, instead of 8-7-8-24) but the old RAM should slow down to the speed of the new RAM.
So after that I decided to do a fresh install of Windows 7 on my new SSD. I unplugged my 500GB, and 750GB drives, plugged my SSD into my SATA 6GB/s port, downloaded the latest version of GParted, burned it to a disk then booted my computer. Once GParted fully loaded I went to format my SSD and GParted didn't detect any drives. I then shut down my computer plugged in my Windows 7 flash drive that I had made a few hours earlier and Windows saw the drive. I used Windows to partition the drive and let Windows start to install. Once Windows got to the first reboot point instead of rebooting I got a BSOD. I then proceeded to run memtest to make sure my new set of RAM was good and the tests completed with no errors.
So right now I'm curious as to why Windows will only allow me to use 6GB of my RAM and why I can't format my SSD using GParted (I'm suspecting it's a driver problem)..... And yes I'm using an x64 OS.
Thanks for the help
