I am running Windows Server 2008 on a Dell Inspiron 530 as a poor Dev Shop's development server. We are using Hyper-V, and need lots of RAM.
We currently have 6Gb of RAM installed, but when booted into 64-bit Win2k8 Std Ed. - the Task Manager reports only 3Gb+ - and I cannot run my 2 VMs, configured for 2Gb each.
The BOIS setup screen shows the 6Gb installed, and the Computer Properties in Win2k8 also shows 6Gb installed.
Anyone have any ideas?
