Re: corrected link...

IOW, using Ultimate has nothing to do with being able to use more memory.

Even the 64 Bit Vista Home Premium that was on it to begin with supported up to 16GB as far as what the Operating System could use.

But, your hardware doesn't (it's limited to 4GB total using 2x2GB of 667Mhz or 800Mhz DDR2 SODIMMs according to Crucial, and they're usually right).

The only time you need anything more than 64 Bit Win Home Premium (and the same thing applies to both Vista and Win 7) for memory upgrade purposes is if you need more than 16GB of memory (if you need more than 16GB total, then you need either Win 7 Pro or Ultimate).  But, your hardware still has to support more.
