Re: [Xen-users] Can't see more than 3.5GB of RAM

Well, that's a shame.  Pretty sure the e801 Map is your problem, and the only fix I have found involves compiling from source with modifications:

I have had success applying the above fix with plenty of versions of Xen, so I can vouch for the above post being a valid workaround.  I still use it with Xen 4.2.

Must be a grub efi bug, supposedly 4.2 has a new option to build xen.efi, which would replace the debian.efi boot file, but I haven't figured anything out for that.

Hello Jonathan,

Have you tried xl dmesg?  It could just be Dom0 not mapping all the RAM.
