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 ?
Hi - I'm having the same problem but can't find the solution, could you point me towards it please.
going into BIOS, disable OS Install Mode.
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.]
That was the right answer, thank you.
This is actually they right answer, thanks.
Yep, this worked for me.
