Could you please test with both pae=0 and pae=1 and see if either works?
Windows 2003 appears to only enable pae when it is required (eg when you
have more than about 3.5G of memory), but from the information I have
been getting it appears that Vista and 2008 enable it always.

Do you have a copy of windows 2008 you can try? I will test that shortly
but I would like to know if it behaves the same way as Vista for you...
