Make sure you have last BIOS as well:

BTW, in the Windows Server 2003 x64 you don't need to use PAE switch for large memory support. Furthermore, even Windows Server 2003 x64 STANDARD edition support up to 32 Gb of memory and you can save money because you don't need enterprise license for memory support. And your DL385 support
Windows Server 2003 x64, so think about it.
(Of course you need to check if your applications will work on x64)
