Hi,

try to update your system firmware to at least 3.11 (PHSS_32501). One of its enhancement is the support of 4GB DIMMs.

It's superseded by PHSS_37674.

Latest firmware is already

System FW 04.28, BMC FW 04.06, iLO MP FW E.03.32 and U160 SCSI EFI Boot Services Driver 01.04.01.00

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=88837&swItem=ux-57429-1&prodNameId=346361&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0

Anyway, in this combination I would suggest to ask your HP support.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
