FWIW, I'am also running a 32bit version of Debian on my 8GB machines.
But I did switch the kernel from "686" to "amd64" (tho it's not strictly
necessary either).

It just never seemed worth the trouble to do a reinstall (this is
Debian testing, originally installed 10 years ago, then updated on
a regular basis, and cloned a few times onto different machines).
