think you will have to remove the 2GB as its upto 8GB. Going beyond that requires a std or ent license
Just spoke with an HP VMware tech - He said I do physically need to take out 2GB of ram. I'll let anyone know here once I head out to the remote location either today or later in the week if this works.
Thought it would at least run a VM but throttle it at 8GB

uum, im sure it shouldnt have stop things from working, we looked at Starter quite a while ago, im also fairly sure the Server had something like 16G in, but we only had 8G to play with when creating VM's..
I thnk you might have been looking at a ESX 3.0.0 machine. it is a licesning requirment that you have a max of 2 proc and 8GB of RAM. if you have more of either, you server will not work.
