Unable to boot due to illegal DRAM configuration

Hi all. I just upgraded a 3640 to 128NVRAM and upgraded flash from 16MB to 32MB.

I am getting Unable to boot due to illegal DRAM configuration on bootup.

Any ideas?

Re: Unable to boot due to illegal DRAM configuration

Hello,

your router sees only

Main memory size: 48 MB in 32 bit mode.

Available main memory starts at 0xa000e000, size 49096KB

IO (packet) memory size: 0 percent of main memory.

NVRAM size: 128KB

what memory chips are you using ?

your only chance to reach 128MB is to use 4 32MB chips with 64bit mode:

32M-DUAL 32M-DUAL 32M-DUAL 32M-DUAL

Hope to help

Giuseppe
