I had updated system from windows r2 standard editon to Enterprise R2 editon sp 2. Upgrade memory from 4 Gb to 16Gb on IBM X 346 server. All memory are same and part no is compatible to ibm x 346 series. After upgrade I added /PAE option in boot.ini and updated system with microsoft security patch and updates.
