After fiddling with this for most of the evening, I have figured out
what the issue is.  The motherboard has some very specific memory
configuration requirements.  Specific brands/models of memory are
supported, but must be in specific DIMM counts, so some memory is
supported only in 2 (1 pair) DIMMS and others only in 4 (2 pair)
DIMMS.  What a pain in the ass!  I haven't seen memory requirements so
specific since the days of Compaq servers!
