Have 2 esxi machines. One comp has 6 gigs and esx starts and sees all the ram. On my other machine, even with same memory, mixed memory, different slots (4) used, all ram are 2gig sticks, ram from other machine esx will not finish booting if more than 4gigs are installed. Freezes at relocating modules and starting kernal. Plus it only sees 3.5. I know thats a 32 bit issue but I used same cd to install esxi. Tower is a dell gx620. Bios sees 6gigs ram.
I should try to reinstall from scratch or even a 64bit os. Is the processor not capable of more ram? What else could it be. Why would esx care?
Any ideas??? TIA
