I have a PROLIANT DL380 G5 with 8 sticks of 4GB of ram. I only want to use 8GB. It seems like the server will only boot correctly with all 8 sticks. Is there a way to configure the system to only use 2 sticks? Do all slots need to be full?

It shonld boot with just one of your 4GB sticks in slot 1, and for 8GB you would use slots 1 and 2. It is the older 5400 series box with the RAM on a southbridge memory controller, http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12477_na/12477_na.html#Memory

Does it have two physcial processors, If so, I think you may have to have the memory in pairs

slots 1 and 3 from the doc did the trick. Thanks!
