memory upgrade ml 370 800Mhz

Hello!
I've made a memory upgrade to a ML370 800Mhz (2x 512MB), and when i install it my sbs200 does not startup. It returns a memory error.
I think then dimm's are ok because the server detects them. Should i make any software or firmware update?
Thanks!

Re: memory upgrade ml 370 800Mhz

Hi Leonel:

Make sure memory is HP certified for that server and not 3rd party; also latest firmware for the server.

- and once you add this memory go to F10 and update the SCU for the Change as this is not automatic on that server.

-if you don't have the F10 partion installed; can try sp19619.exe.

Note: make sure you are not using 3rd party memory.

Leonel:

Pull the RAM and boot into windows, then check your Boot.ini file and make sure you do not have a "/maxmem=number" statement in there. If so, increase it or remove it entirely if you can.
Enjoy!
