    Just let us know when you do this and what the result is

    Also regarding the OS. Just unplug the HardDrive and test ! (Probably done)

    "So if i go back to 2Gb system, install Vista Ultimate 64. Then insert the other 2 sims ur saying the board will miraculously see this other 2Gb? When it wont post the bios currently with all 4 sims inplace."

    Just to be clear here, I pointed out that, in the links I could find;

    1 - Asus NEVER claimed that mobo would support Vista of any flavour
    2 - Asus NEVER claimed that mobo would support 8 Gb Ram in anything but 4 servers and XP PRO 64 bit.

    Further, you wanted to know how to get into Bios and I said remove 2 sticks of Ram.

    Yes all good info
    But the question is why it won't post with 8Gig mounted, irrespective of the OS or even if the HardDrive was unplugged!
