Excuse me for butting in. Whats PAE ?
Explanation -PAE = Physical Address Extensions32bit OS's can only access 4GB (really more like 3.7) of RAM .. PAE overcomes this limitation of 32bit memory addressing .. but it requires the CPU to support PAE, and the 32bit OS to have a PAE enabled kernel64bit OS's don't have the limitation in the first place .. but obviously need a 64bit CPUjust a few old 32bit CPU's are still being used in old hardware that don't support PAE, and Peppermint 4 no longer has a NON-PAE kernel .. so anyone with one of these is stuck.Your Core2 CPU is fully 64bit, but still has 32bit PAE support .. so can run either 64bit, 32bit with PAE or 32bit non-pae kernels, so it doesn't matter which you get Still clear as mud ? .. read this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension
