    I don't understand your question. RAM is hardware, but it needs software for some of it to be accessed by an operating system. This software is usually loaded at boot time.

    Cracked it. had to switch from ahci to ide in the bios and enable csm (whatever that is).

    I'll take Sudo15's advice and try and find out why I've got so many recovery partitions. First stop ASUS.
