I haven't checked for BIOS updates yet, we were planning to try a different
brand of memory modules. The chipset is supposed to be able to support up to
16GB. 8GB should definitely be supported by the default BIOS revision. I put
4GB in it, and it boots up fine.
Also, this has nothing to do with the fact that it runs slow when its up and
running with 4GB.
