That's just about the biggest bullshit I've ever heard!!!!!!!!!
Let's get a few things straight here.
1. BIOS (Basic Input Output System)
is firmware code and it's primary function is to identify and initiate component hardware (such as hard disk, floppy and optical disk drives). This is to prepare the machine so other software programs stored on various media can load, execute, and assume control of the PC.
2. Operating System
(Windows, Linux, BDS...) is the software that manages the resources of a computer and provides programmers with an interface used to access those resources.
3. Yes we are familiar with the limitation that 32bit OSs have regarding memory. We know all about the /PAE and the /3GB switches.
So now that we have that straightened out, please explain to me how can an operating system, even a 64bit OS, use something that's not even detected by the BIOS? Bios reports the amount of ram to the OS. OS doesn't "knock" directly on RAM and asks it how much memory it has.
So this problem is in fact the limitation of the BIOS not, an OS issue. And the only one who can resolve this issue is FSC, by issuing the BIOS update. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it's in fact just BIOS and that it's not a HW design flaw!
Come on FSC stop ignoring us and fix our systems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
