I spoke to a member of the Microsoft Platform Team and was given the following KB article:
950233 The Microsoft System Information (Msinfo32.exe) tool reports the incorrect amount of physical memory in a Windows Server 2008-based or Windows Vista Service Pack 1-based computer that has more than 4 GB of physical memory installed http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...-US;950233
I was further told that when it comes to memory utilization, not to use msinfo32.exe, but to use RamMap.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...00229.aspx
In running RamMap I was able to verify that my 6.0 GB was being utilized and all was recognized by the OS.
Thanks for your help.
