Windows 2003 R2 - Max Memory

I understand that Windows 2003 EE R2 addresses 64GB max by default but, is there any memory extension that can be achieved without rebuilding some Dell R810 (128GB RAM) with the 64bit version of Windows 2003. This would save a major head-ache if it could be achieved.

Negative.  The referenced OS is not capable of addressing more than 64GB RAM, and this is through PAE on x86 systems:

Yes thought as much, at least I can now go back to my bosses and tell them I told your so.  ;)
