No its a problem with OS i guess they installed it without high memory support. They been trying to ******** me for the last 5 hours that they did install it. Now they told me to fix my own problem. Good thing there services is unmetered or I'll leave.
Its a kernel issue. Anyone have any guides on how to recompile kernel with high memory support?
I doubt it is the kernel if you are using the latest CentOS 3 or CentOS 4. We've seen similar issues on some mobo's. We had also had an Asus board with issues not recognizing a cpu. A bios update fixed that. I've also seen this on a chaintech board.
I suspect your provider may not want to update the bios or for some odd reason they have the bios set to reserve 1GB of ram for the shared on-board video.

Just had steven from rack911 to try a new kernel and it didn't work. He says it is a hardware problem. So I'm going to keep asking FDCServers to swap boards (since they said thats where the problem is) untill they do.
THey told me 4gbs would work fine but I guess they forgot to mention it will only do "It's being used by the system to increase transfer speeds between the other 3 sticks and the main system hardware. You'll see a noticeable increase in response time because of it."
So I'm concluding its a Hardware issue or they just scammed me out of a gb of ram.
Same freaken board here and people can get 4GB to work. I think they just jacked me out of a gig of ram or enabled 1gb video card.
They told me 4GB would work. If they told before hand that 4GB will not work and only work for hardware side then I would be ok. The fact is they didn't, I don't think I'm the only customer at FDCServers with more then 4GB of ram.
I am asking for a mobo swap of a working A8V-VM for my A8V-VM
Trying a reformat to CentOS 32bit. If that dosn't work I'll just ask how to get a mobo swap.
You can swap mobo's and rebuild kernels all you want, but I know for a fact that P4 775 socket mobo's will only show 3 GB of RAM in the Bios when 4 GB is installed. I am not sure about new sockets, but that one is fairly new.
AMD64 Boards do not have this issue.

Reformatted with 32bit and had steven install a custom kernel again still no go. I sent a email to petr to request a motherboard swap to a working one. The techs at fdcservers flatout denied me because they can see it bios.
