[QUOTE=Micro420;3047585]1) enable PAE in motherboard BIOS
I wonder, there is a option to enable PAE from the BIOS. (It might be possible, that the same is present in other systems).
If this issue is only related to the use of memory more than 4GB, then, Why don't u try to setup the PAE kernel itself in the system.
On my system,I successfully built a PAE kernel, the issue got resolved. The steps I used:
make cleandepend && make depend
The next steps would be to run "make install", which would install the kernel and then to reboot.
The PAE kernel configuration file is included with the distribution, you don't need to create it.
Comments from senior members is needed. This will encourage me. Thanks
