Hi Stephan,

I'm pretty sure,
I was building a cluster, of two identical systems with motherboard DQ45CB. the behavious was the same on both.
In each I had 2 modules of 2 gig. and both modules worked when inserted in the system.

Until this day the dmesg show some error but the system is working fine in production, (Uptime of 60 days + passthrough and still counting). I posted the dmesg before but no reaction then. Again with this output the system is working and I'm not sure If it is related. De dmesg of the freezing system I was never able to capture.

==== xm dmesg begin======

I seen the same problem with motherboard DQ45CB with 4 gig and pci pass-through enabled. The system just freezes at start up. when reducing the memory to 2 gig he system boots ok and is working fine, including the pci pass-through.

Are you sure that you don't have defective memory? In my case everything but PCI Pass Through runs fine with any memory size (no freezes).
