Item 12

Item 12 gives the path of system environment variables as HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Session Manager\Environment There is no such path. HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment does however exist

Note from the Author or Editor:
The reporter is right, the key "Control" is missing in between CurrentControlSet and Session Manager.

The last of the first paragraph

Although written as "(4 MB on x86, and 16 MB on IA64 and x64)", in x64, large pages size is not 16 MB and also forgot x86 with PAE.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Text should say: (4 MB on x86 without PAE, 2MB on x64 and x86 with PAE, and 8 MB on IA64)
