I purchased an ASUS TS500-E6/PS4 barebone server, popped in 12 gig of ram, 3 320 gig hard drives, and an Intel Xeon E5504 Nehalem 2.0GHz LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor. I went into the BIOS and changed the HD configuration to raid, then changed the pin settins on the MOBO to intel, and set up a raid 5 configuration. All went well; however, on each boot I hear two beeps, and it gives me the following error:
Invalid memory configuration on cpu1.
Press F1 to run setup
Press F2 to load defaults
If I press F1 to get into the BIOS, I see the HD configuration is not set to RAID...so, I reset it to RAID, save and exit. On boot, I get teh same errors; however, this time I am able to press F2 and load windows SBS 2008.
I have the processor on slot 2 on the MOBO, should I move it to slot 1? Is this reason the reason why windows is only seeing 6 gig of ram instead of 12? If it isn't, then I'll post a new question for that issue.
