I have an Intell entry server board SE7221BA1-E  WITH 4gb of ram installed. the bios shows it, when I install windows server 2008 Enterprise it loads up just fine and the OS shows 4 full gigs or ram.
When I try to install SBS 2008 it states that there is not enough ram and stops the install. Any ideas as to why this is happening some thing in the bios I missed?

I presume you are trying to install 64 bit Edition of SBS 2008, 4gb is the minimum amount of RAM require for 64bit. I have provided a link below that might help to explain this.

I have minimum amount or ram but as to what the actual reason may be increasing the ram is a standard technique and we all that will work fine.
