PAE in Prolian DL 380 G3 Windows 2003 x86

Hi all!
I have ProLiant DL 380 G3 with Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2 x86. It has physically 6,5 Gb of RAM, but Windows can see only 3,5 of RAM. I cant enable PAE in the BIOS. Please, can U tell me in details how to enable it in BIOS?

Server info:
Management Processor Firmware (Active) 1.92
System ROM Firmware-P29 (Active) 2004.09.15

Thanx!

Hi, Andrey
Did you write PAE parameter in the boot of the OS? if nope, add it... if you`ll need help, you can write to me (azamat@hp.com).

P.S.: S nastupaushim novim godom!

Re: PAE in Prolian DL 380 G3 Windows 2003 x86

yeah, right
Win2K3 Standart x86 (32 bit) support only 4 GB, Standart x64 (64bit) supports 16 GB (not sure, but something like this). i hope you have in stalled Win2K3 Enterprise Edition.
so put the parameter /PAE in the c:\boot.ini (c: - system disk, if system disk has different letter, edit it) add /PAE in the boot line

Ex:

[boot loader]
timeout=0
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /PAE

This is empty server. We have licensed Enterprise, so reinstall is necessarily )))

If you enable DEP (maybe NX bit) in the BIOS, and enable DEP in Windows, this will also achieve the same.
