    SubjectIntel-Quad on GA-P35-S3 motherboard with 4*2GB
    I can't see whole 8GB of ram.

    With F2 BIOS release i can only work with kernel param mem=4G.
    After updating to F4 BIOS release I can work with mem=8G, but I see this:

    # free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 6473 474 5999 0 29 278

    Without mem=8G kernel starts to slow down and hangs while starting
    There is no message.

    My whole memory was tested with memtest. Full test took about 48hour. Is
    it wrong?

    I have: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 2.40GHz
    There are 4 * 2GB / 667MHz DIMMs.

    # cat /proc/iomem |grep RAM
    00000000-0009f7ff : System RAM
    00100000-9fedffff : System RAM
    100000000-25fffffff : System RAM

    # dmesg|grep BIOS-e820

    I can see that higer memory range was remmaped,
    by why accesing something greater than 100000000 is problematic?
    Do I need to change something i kernel configuration?
