proliant 1600 dual 300

I have some 256mB EDO ram pair out of a proliant 5000 and stuck it into the 1600 but when it boots it reads the memory ok but then says processor can't utilize all this memory warning- it then goes on to boot into windows 2000 server and hangs !!!!!! at the little white indicators first screen.

Any ideas?

Do you use original HP memory?

Re: proliant 1600 dual 300

This machine actually only supports a total of 512 mb:

You can use over 512, but the processor cache can only access 512 mb of the system memory. This is a limitation of the chipset.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Re: proliant 1600 dual 300

I use memory expansion board

Expansion Board
Banks 1 2 3 4 have 64Mb EDO Original compaq RAM
Banks 5 6 7 8 empty

On main board have
Banks 1 2 have 64 Mb EDO original compaq RAM
Banks 3 4 empty

TOTAL = 380Mb

I thought with expansion memory board that you could get to 1 GIG RAM?

Thx for answers :-) Rad

Checked pdf and it states 512mB is max - no way round this if chipset can't
