windows 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2!! , OS do not see more than 3.5GB Ram (Server has 16 GB Ram Physical) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed server 2003 Enterprise R2 with SP2 on a HP Proliant ML 370 G4, the server has 16 GB RAM physical !
    The problem is that the OS do not see more than 3.5 GB RAM, I wonder how to fix so the R2 can se all 16 GB RAM. I have not installed anything else on the server, the only thing is the OS.
    Is any solution on this ?

  • Please add /PAE switch to your boot.ini and let us know if it works. 
    This is how your ARC path should look:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /PAE
