My Windows Server 2003 (Dell PowerEdge 2800)
Under the General Tab and in Task Manager I noticed after installing the OS it is only showing 256MB out of 4GB that is available.
I have a Dell PERC 4E/Di Raid Controller that has 256MB of memory. Is the OS using this memory instead of the actual ram installed?
I even tried to enable /PAE on system startup, but that didn't do anything.
*New*: I have now noticed under the System Profiling it says 256MB for System Memory. Though just below that are the 4x 1GB sticks.
I find it really strange. I going to call Dell on Monday but I would like to know if any of you smart people have come across this in the past or what may be causing this.
Thanks!SOLUTION:BIOS setting "OS Install Mode=Off" needs to be set instead of being on. When ON system is limited to 256MB of Ram
Thank you everyone for helping!
