Upgraded to 16G on my Proliant N40L Microserver

Bought a second stick of 8G RAM




Was v. disapointed when the system did not report any more RAM inside.  Boo Hoo.

As usual scanned the web, and found This Link 

Sure enough, power cycling a few times (needed to actually pull the plug out) and it showed as 16GB in BIOS.  Rebooting out of BIOS setup screen and the darned thing came back as 8GB, but cycled it again without F10 and it showed 16GB in BIOS startup screens, and vSphere is showing 16GB too.

Now its working, I’m leaving well alone.
