I bought a 1600 SC before Xmas. However I have unpacked and installed the OS after POST before booting into windows the following appears on each reboot.
Amount of Available Memory limited to 256MB !
Strike the F1 Key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility
On pressing F1 I boot normally into windows 2000 server.
Any pointers on how to eliminate this error at boot time ?
My poweredge 1400 has this problem even with 1 gig installed, the bios rev is A09 and the memory allocation is fixed by, this as far as i can see, it is not selectable in the bios.
I cannot find any later releases of bios flash upgrades,
can anybody suggest any work arounds ?
Hi, I am new here (and new to the PowerEdge 2500 - service tag BBFRC0J)
The machine was acquired with 4 X 128 MB modules, but reporting 256 available memory. I have added 2 X 512MB modules manufactured by CRUCIAL specifically for this machine, but it reports "system memory changed" but still `sees' only 256MB.
An ordinary PC sees whatever is installed, but presumably one has to tell the 2500 somehow what the new memory is? Can anyone help me, please?
[I have tried searching and looking through several pages, but this is the only thread I have found that seems to match my problem.]
