    Or you can blow off Windoze and go for MX Linux! :D Also, there still aren't many 4GB DDR2 SODIMMS.

    Actually Vista Business ran pretty good, I restored a CF-19Mk2 with the factory disc and it ran good with an ssd. Old guy with time on his hands.:D

    I had Vista Ultimate and it is what made me look at Linux after failing to get Red Hat 7 to work after installing it. It was way to bloated but it was still a good OS, especially compared to Windows 8 and 8.1

    Dell also makes 4 GB ram sticks, cost me about $50 each. Got them working in my CF-52 GUN a while back, works nicely under Win7 that came on this model.

    Good to know which specific SODIMMs work. I've seen it before that one brand/model/series # would work and another not work.

    Running MX Linux it's super fast. Also helps that it has a Crucial SSD installed. Has been a really solid machine so far. No issues whatsoever. BTW the PCMCIA and Express slot both work. Also, It works very reliably running Motorola RSS for Maxtrac out of Dos 6.22. I have a 2 GB MS-DOS 6.22 partition on the drive for programming older radios. Been a fine machine so far, and having 8GB of RAM is definitely a bonus.
