Re: 3GB out of 4GB on RHEL4 U2

Issue: How can I enable all 4GB of installed RAM if I have a Tyan Thunder K8
Motherboard with Opteron CPU(s) and the system only reports 3GB?

Resolution:

This is a result of the way that this motherboard handles PCI and AGP
mapping. Customers have reported success in seeing all 4GB by upgrading to
the latest BIOS release and making the following configuration settings in
the BIOS:

Main > Installed OS > Linux
Advanced > Hammer Config > MTRR Mapping Discrete
Advanced > Hammer Config > Memory Hole > Memhole Mapping > Software
Advanced > Hammer Config > Memory Hole > IOMMU > Enabled
