Hi Guys,

I'm Rob Kruit from The Netherlands and I found this forum googling for a problem with a motherboard I just bought.

I wanted to build a VMWare ESXi server with 8GB of RAM so I got this Jetway 966PDAG at a discount. Since it has a 965 chipset it should support 8GB's of ram. I installed 4x 2GB modules of ram and the bios reports the memory correctly. However VMWare reports only 3.2GB of ram and so is 64 bit Windows Vista. I know this is a memory remap issue but I can't find this setting in the award bios so I think it's hidden. Is there any way to unhide this setting?

The support page for this board says it supports 8GB. If it is there, the remap setting is found here:

Advanced => Chipset => North Bridge Configuration => Memory Remapping Feature

Do not assume anything

Thanks but I allready flashed the board with this bios. There is no North Bridge Configuration menu in this bios. I think it's hidden or disabled.
