    Before we can tell you how much ram you can install, you need to tell use the exact make and model ie hp xxx123 or whatever. Since you have a 32bit os, the very most ram you can use is 4gig. Installing more than that amount would be a waste.
    No, for a number of reasons. First of all, oem type windows lic are tied to the original hardware ie you cannot move an oem type windows install to another system. Next that old of a desktop is not going to run win8 in any case.
