Unable to boot after adding memory


Recommended Posts

I added memory to my baremetal setup and was unable to boot afterwards. The boot process hangs after the 1.04 boot selection screen. "Happy hacking"

I went from 1x8gb UDIMM to 4x 8gb UDIMM.

When I reduced the number to 2x8GB UDIMMs I could boot.

I believe the memory is good. I can see it in the BIOS. I also tried moving sticks around and mixing and matching to no effect.

The system is a Dell Poweredge T30 with 6x 4TB WD HDD

The memory is DDR4-2666MHz PC4-21300 ECC UDIMM 2Rx8 1.2V Unbuffered

I'm using the 1.04b loader with the DSM_DS918+_23739 pat.

I couldn't really find others having this problem.

Thoughs?

Check the speed of the sticks, they must match -  also they all must be ECC or Non-ECC can't mix that also.

I have the same issue using a 918+ Jun's 1.04b on a Supermicro 1150 board.  It won't boot unless you boot it with the amount of memory that the OS was installed with.   I tried going from 16GB to 32GB (for no reason)  and it won't boot.   Removed the ram and it booted without issue.  You aren't the only one, but only workaround it is install the DSM with the configuration that won't change.
