32 bit SQL server running on a 64 bit os  without AWE can access a max memory of 4GB,  for anything beyond this you need AWE. So if you are upgrading to 32 bit sql 2014 ( on a 64bit os ) the maximum memory it can access will be 4GB.  otherwise you should upgrade to 64bit SQL

It depends on which version of Operating System and SQL Server are you using.

That's true since MSSQL 2012, so if you still working with previous SQL Server's versions you can still use AWE.
If you have a SQL Server 2008R2 32bits or any previous 32bits version of SQL Server you can only set the AWE if the Windows Server is also 32bits. Don't works on 64bits of Windows Server.

And that's why it told "It depends on which version of Operating System and SQL Server are you using. "
