Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to boot kernel w/o mem=4G. Locks up.
Either the install program should run or you should get to login prompt (after
Pentium Core Duo 2 (~1.66)
SATA ACHI mode 300GB x 3

against having to specify RAM size.

this as a dup b/c frist submit worked. (Just have to pay attention to the "it
worked" screen and the error screen it opens after that)
