  • w2008 32bit & 8gb RAM problem

    (sorry, my english isn´t good at all)

    When I try to install w2008 server enterprise with 8gb of RAM, the setup process initiate but, at the first screen (message "Windows is loading files..."), when the bottom bar reach the end, the system hang up.
    If I try with only 4Gb de RAM, I can install w2008 (standar or enterprise) without problem, buy after that, when I put the additional 4Gb, the system never boot. If I try with "safe boot" the last line that I can see is "loading crcdisk.sys". (a)

    A few minutes ago, I try with w2008 x64 & 8Gb, same problem.
    Now, I try with 4Gb and after finish the install, try to put the 4Gb additionals and see what happens.

    (a) When I boot 4Gb, I execute (in a desesperate try), the next commands in command line:
    BCDEdit /set nx AlwayOff
    BCDEdit /set PAE forceenable

    and reboot the machine, install the 4Gb additional ... same problem

    any ideas?

    Motherboard: Intel DP35DP
    Micro: Intel Core 2 Quad


    Thanks in advance

    BIOS update first off, also make sure you have the remapping selected in the bios.
    Finally make sure the RAM you have chosen is supported for the motherboard and you are running it at the correct speed.

    Info from the Intel Site:

    * Support for an Intel® Celeron® processor in an LGA775 socket with an 800 MHz system bus
