Problem with DG31PR while loading windows 2003 server with 4gb ram
I have desktop configured with following components below
DG31 PR mother board and
Transcend ddr2 800 jet ram (total 4gb) Pentium dual core e2180
Hard disk 500 gb sata
i'm facing problem while loading the Windows 2003 server, it is going for dump.
Strngely when I tried with pulling out 2gb ram (now system has only 2gb ram) windows 2003 server got loaded.
My main objective of this configuration is to use 4gb ram --can any one please give me the sollution. Does DG31 supports 4gb ram with above configuration, this is very urgent
Re: Problem with DG31PR while loading windows 2003 server...
The board dg31pr has only 2 memory slots. to work as dual channel populate both slots with equal rams. hence if using 32 bit os even though you can use max 3 gb ram it is best to use only 2gb(1gb x 2) kit. use 4gb ram only for os with 62 bits ie 4gb(2gb x 2) kit arrangement.

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device) Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel. Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed). Intel's web site here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2839&lang=eng
