One technical question.
I know how PAE, 64bit addressing, Segmentation and protection on 386 or PentiumPro work
I don't know what happens when I enable the memory remapping option on the BIOS.
Where are the addresses of the memory mapping devices moved to?
1. Close to 64GB because my Processor has got only 36bit of ABUS, regardless of motherboard and chipset (I have a E6600 now)
2. Close to 8GB because my Motherboard has only a maximum addressable of 8GB, so it is really likely that it has only 33 lines of ABUS, so regardless of processor and chipset
3. In any case close tothe incredible address 2^64, because the complete address space of the processor is 64bit, so regardless of the 36bit of ABUS, motherboard issues or whatever else. (I have written this one just not to finish with only 2 options, but I wouldn't bet on it a single euro).
The same question is: If I have Windows64bit, 8GB on my motherboard which supports 8GB, and I have enabled the Memory Remapping, would I be able to address all the 8GB or again I can have the limit to 6.8GB - 7.5GB?
If it is 8GB because the addresses are moved closed to 64GB, why the hell my motherboard is limited to only 8GB, if all the things tell me that I am able to address up to 64GB?
Thank you for your help.
