Windows 7: Memory Hole Remapping problems...

Memory Hole Remapping problems...

Hi guys :)

Just got given a system to update to Windows 7 x64 (7127) from a friend, and having a little trouble with this one.

After install completed, and on final reboot, I got the dreaded BSOD, so it was stuck in this loop forever, until I removed 1 stick of RAM (2Gb), then system completed and loaded to desktop just fine. After more testing, I've discovered that it will only boot with 1 stick of RAM, unless I DISABLE 'Memory Hole Remapping' in BIOS, once this is DISABLED, then it boots fine with the 2 sticks of RAM (4Gb).

Problem with this, is that the BIOS and Win7 now only report 3.28Gb as usable!!, probably due to the 'Memory Hole Remapping' being DISABLED.

Board only has 2 RAM slots and takes a MAX of 4Gb, BIOS is up to date, and is an ECS AMD690GM-M2 model.

Is this the nature of the beast?
