RAM amount doesn't match

Hi,

I used Disk2VHD to convert a physical server (windows 2008R2) to a VM that runs on Windows 2012 Hyper V.

I assigned 64G RAM to this VM from the host setting. I do can see all the RAM amount correctly in Control Panel>System in the VM, but shows only 32G in the Windows Task Manager>Performance. I would like this VM using all the RAM (64G ) as I allocated to it.

Is there anything I missed to setup in the Hyper V setting? Thanks

If you are not running 2008 R2 Enterprise or Data Center, you CANNOT see more than 32 GB of RAM.  2008 R2 Standard had a limit of 32 GB of RAM.  Nothing you can do other than to upgrade to 2012 (Standard or Enterprise), 2008R2 Enterprise, or 2008R2 Datacenter.
