Hi all,

Ok, The 3ware and Highpoint works fine with 4GB of RAM. But I can hook 
another 4GB wiht 3ware and it works fine wiht 8GB but thats not the case 
for Highpoint.
Highpoint dont work with installation of 4GB and then inserting 4GB.
And it works fine wiht ACPi disables and floppy is present.

Aman
