DL360 G6 Memory not visible on W2008 32 Bits Enterprise

Hello from France,

Iâ ve got a problem with my 3 Proliant G6 new generation Performance edition
Iâ ve installed Windows 2008 32 Bits SP2 Enterprise Edition on four server (One dell and 3 HP) all together with 12 Go installed Memory

The same edition of Windows 2008 : Enterprise Edition 32bits capable of 64Go of memory.
In my Dl360 G6, 12Go are ok in my Bios but when I lanch Windows Server Enterprise Edition , available memory still max at 4GO.

And in Dell Computer 12Go is OK and recognize by the OS 32bit Enterprise 2008
I tried to put bcedit /set PAE ForceEnable but no change

I notice in certain forum that maybe a Bios parameter can perturb the capabability of detection memory in OS ..

Have you some help about it ?
Thank in Advance

Thank for response,
I already read this article many time before ask for help in this forum.

This article told :Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 32 bits edition limite memory for Max 64 GB (I Need 12Go) and PAE need to be enable by this commande:

bcdedit /set pae ForceEnable

I set that sequence and reboot all my server
bcdedit /enum return correctly the paramater but 4Go still present to OS Enterprise Edition

This parameter is ok on DELL server and memory is 12 Go for OS .

But on my HP DL360 i've got the problem ..
May be another parameter somewhere to enable Extended memory on my 2008 Server Enterprise Edition 32 Bits HP DL 360 G6..

I don't know where to find ...
