Hi all,

I am just trying to install FreeBSD 7.1 amd64 distro on the HP ML 150 G5
server and when booting, BIOS detects 9 GB of RAM, but when starting to
install the system it is displayed that only 4 GBs are detected. Also the
default swap partition size is 4 GB ... What would be the needed steps to
enable FreeBSD using the entire memory in the machine?

Thank you in advance for your time,
