    Windows XP x64 can handle it, but who in the hell would run that on their system? :)

    I ran XPx64 for a long time, and without any hitch or issue ......until 7 came around :D

    I run XP64 with a 4gig gpt partition on no problem and I can see absolutely no reason to down grade my system to 7 at all!
