Successfully installed Windows 10 64bit and everything runs fine with either 2Gig or 4Gig RAM installed. 


Add additional RAM up to 8Gig which BIOS recognises and on boot Windows 10 goes into Automatic Repair Mode which ends in failure. Nor will the original USB/DVD Windows 10 install when trying to do a repair from that.


Drop back to 4Gig RAM and all is fine again.


First error given as hiberfil.sys and error code 0xc0000411 which I dealt with as suggested by turning off hibernation.


Now when above 4Gig Windows 10 attempts Automatic Repair and arrives at the universal nightmare error code 0xc0000225.


I suspect this is a problem with Windows 10 and memory addressing and looking at BIOS settings I tried Memory Hole Disable/Able option and also System Configuration Boot Advanced Options to confirm the Maximum Memory box is Unchecked.


Before I try a BIOS flash does anyone have any experience of Windows 10 64bit problems with RAM greater than 4Gig?
