Hello Experts,

I have Dell  Power Edge R710 with 2 processors ( each processor 4 cores and logical cores).

It has windows 2008 R2 Datacenter Edition OS. I have installed 32 GB RAM but it shows 24 GB usable.

Please can anyone help in this issue.

Thanks

You did not place them symmetrically on the processors.
Check your manual.

The gotcha is that slot no 1 is the furthest one from the processor and the adjacent slots are not in order.
You probably set them - assuming you have 4 memory sticks - as A1, A4, B9, B6.
