Default vista 5536 don't see my full memory size

I used both 32 bits and 64 bits beta 2 and they both saw the 4 gigs. that why
i can not understand why 5536 does not.

It is a 32bit thing... try installing teh 64bit build and it sees all...

5536 is 32 bit. Were you using a 64 bit version before? With a 32 bit OS
you are limited to 4 GB and the motherboard reserves some of it for I/O.
