Summary 0002576: LiveCD boot fails with Low Memory, wrong amount of RAM detected
Description Trying to boot the LiveCD on a Dell Dimension XPS R450 (old machine):

Pentium II 450
384mb RAM
3c905 netcard
16gb HD
ATI Rage video card

The serial debug log indicates that only 64mb was detected, and boot fails pretty early with a "Low Memory" panic.

Tried other boot options from the grub menu with no success.

Memtest86+ sees the RAM and tests fine - also Debian and Haiku both see the RAM on this machine fine.

I noticed that grub also was only detecting 64mb, even Debian's grub, even though Debian finds the remaining RAM when it loads.

I noted this: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#displaymem [^]

So I ran it and uploaded a picture of the output in case it's useful.
