I have a Dell Poweredge R710 server, which has 2 separate banks with 9 slots each. the server came with 6 sticks of registered ECC memory and I have 6 sticks of unbuffered ECC memory.

The server boots with all 6 of either type of memory without complaining.

is it possible that the server could boot both types of memory if each type was populated in its own bank. If so, would there be a bios setting change necessary?
