    Can Win 2003 Std be upgraded in place to Win 2003 Enterprise (ie without
    having to do a clean install) ? The 4GB memory limit in the Standard Edition
    is causing problems as it runs our SQL 2005 Server so we assume we will have
    to follow this upgrade path. TIA ...

    We did not think of that before the post, but since you brought it up we are
    double-checking to make sure our hardware and version of SQL Server will
    support it. So that was a good call on your part for bringing that to our
    attention - much appreciated sir.

  6. you can download for free SQL 2005 64 bit.
    Even SQL CAL are both 32 & 64 bit.

    Ask your retail vendor, or download evaluation and register it with your
    current serial.

    For hardware, it can be AMD 64 or intel EMT64
