Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

do you know if it is possible to use both ECC and Registered DDR2 SDRAM in a server?

We have a mix of both, but when they are all installed, the server fails to boot.

Specifically, when using registered RAM, ALL modules in the system need to be registered. You can't mix and match.

Also: see Crucial.
