Re: What's so special about base memory?



fixed

Nothing, nothing special at all. IBM Just didn't want to create a feature code to upgrade it as that additional amount of memory wasn't enough to monkey with for most shops.

Feel free to swap it out for larger DIMMs

Likely the machine says max supported memory is 896 or something like that but it will happily go to a full GB.

Guys,<br/><br/>I was tinkering with my 9406-170, and I was looking at the memory slots. Base memory is supposed to be non-exchangeable, but it was there in the same memory slots as the other DIMMs (mine has 2x fc3001 base mem, and 2 extra fc3002s). Nothing preventing me from swapping those 3001s for another set of 3002s.<br/><br/>So I was wondering: what makes this base mem so special? This Base mem concept isn't used in the modern machines (not even virtual), right?<br/><br/>Rene.<a href="https://overview.mail.yahoo.com?.src=iOS";><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone</a>
