    Hello folks,

    anyone knows why Windows Server 2003 doesn't diplay a correct
    value in the system summery for 'total physical storage'?

    I'm running Win2k3 on an iWILL DPX2-S320 with dual Xeon
    processors. When I use this board with 2 GB Ram, actually
    only 1 GB of Ram is displayed.

    Any ideas?

    kind regards,

  2. Usually this is a result of RAM being disabled in the system BIOS. I
    would boot into BIOS and chck to see if you've disabled any RAM. I'm
    not familiar with that particular piece of hardware but it's possibl
    that the machine has redundant memory too in which case you may have
    loaded 2GB of RAM in the machine but 1 GB is there for fault tolerance.
    In either case the OS would not see the total physical RAM in the box.
