Doesn't that only work if Windows is already booted in 3GB mode? I thought I
read somewhere that the flag doesn't do anything if the system wasn't booted
"The /3GB switch allocates 3 GB of virtual address space to an application
that uses IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE in the process header. This switch
allows applications to address 1 GB of additional virtual address space above
The virtual address space of processes and applications is still limited to 2
GB, unless the /3GB switch is used in the Boot.ini file."
