Kingston KTH-PL313E/2G works fine both wih win 7 and WHS.
ive also tried turning off the acpi in the bios and still doesnt boot
Have you tried running a single stick of memory? Try each stick and in each slot.
I've got 4gb (£30) in mine no probs with 2008 R2, google "CT25664BA1339".
A few things:
1) Is the memory you bought rated to run at 1.5 volts as opposed to the 1.6+ needed by some enthusiast brands?
2) Are you getting BSODs with the 1GB stick or just the 2GB ones?
3) Mixing the 1GB and 2GB sticks won't work as you can't mix ECC and non ECC memory.
4) You didn't mention if you've tried just one of the 2GB sticks with the other slot empty?
Otherwise it is looking like you could have a faulty server.
I dumped a couple of the cheapest sticks I could find in and they've worked fine and passed memtest overnight.

Are you getting as far as the screen where you have the option to download the latest updates or proceed without them? If you are then make sure you don't download them. Let the installation complete and then update it.
Got my cheque today at last, took 28 days from receipt of confirmation email.
I have 2x KVR-1333D3E9S/2G Kingston 2 GB/PC3-10600/Unbuffered/ECC
You can get it for £18 a stick if you shop around, it's ECC and it will definitely work.
Linux users - which kernel driver are you compiling for the sata chipset?
10024391 Yes ATI Technologies Inc SB700/SB800 SATA Controller [AHCI mode] ahci v2.6.25-
But it just fails with kernel panic and in the past this has been due to me getting the wrong sata chipset etc...
Update, sorted. Anyone using USB will need rootwait and bootparams kernel options.
Someone mentioned sticking a drive in the, 3 1/2 bay and reply was it wasn't worth it because there is only 1 other port that is meant for the 5 1/4, what about the esata, or is it a shared internal port?
Has anyone else used the OCZ 2x2Gb set here with success yet? http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-221-OC
I notice psprigs above is having issues with the set, at £25 they're tempting me for this server, but if they have issues with this server, I won't bother...
Anyone know where I can find 2k3 storage drivers for this? Just I've got in a load of them at work and it's not detecting the drives, so I'm assuming I'm going to have to F6 it and install them that way.
The other option is to just stick them in IDE mode in the BIOS, most people seem to be reporting this as being just as quick as the AHCI mode.
Will this still allow me to use 2TB disks?
I'm definitely going to order one of these servers. However, I wish to upgrade the RAM to 4GB, or, better still, use the existing stick and have 5GB. Could you make a recommendation as to what RAM I should buy, if OcUK don't stock it, could you post the part number so I can go hunting.
reguarding the 4gb ram...
In the end, the 2x2g set i 1st had didnt let and OS boot, then the OCZ pair wouldnt let it boot, so in the end i thought i'd buy a stick from the place i bought the server from, so if it didnt boot again, i could say the server came from you and the ram your ad recommended does work for me either so i could then stop wasting money buying memory when it could of been the machine itself...
But i did buy from servers plus the 4gb kingston non ecc single stick and it worked perfectly..
Model No. KVR1333D3N9/4G
so i dont know where the real problem lies, either ram of machine, OS's etc, but now it works ive given up trying..
I dont suppose this microserver supports DDR3 ECC Registered memory does it, as I have loads of that.
Yes it does, unbuffered ECC, want to sell some
I have some Registered ECC, different from just ECC.
Part #: CT1535493 • DDR3 PC3-10600 • CL=9 • Dual Ranked • Registered • ECC • DDR3-1333 • 1.5V • 512Meg x 72
Registered memory won't work.
