@Hans

Thank you for chiming in.
Too bad the same method can't be used for normal RAM.

wrt Ram usage:
I guess it works similar to how HDD space was adressed back in the day when everything above 4 GB wasn't usable.
iirc there was the need to explicitely create a boot partition within the first 2 GB of a HDD, otherwise it wouldn't work as it couldn't be found by the system/kernel.

It's probably also simply picking up the RAM (the whole i.e. 4 GB is correctly displayed in CFE) and just addresses the first 2 GB it finds, sidestepping the rest.
