Can't Upgrade to 24 gigs of Ram

Hello All,

I was attempting to upgrade a system for my company from 12 to 24 gigs and I have run into a problem, I will give the system specs below. The system is a dual boot server (windows 7 pro service pack 1 / Suse Linux 11.1) that works perfectly when the 12 gigs of ram was installed. When I put the new sticks in the bios registers the 24 gigs of ram and the Linux installation runs as expected. However, when I start windows the starting screen comes up for a few moments then the system black screens. When I restart the system it asks to repair windows and if I select that option a blue screen appears and tells me Bios is not fully ADCI compliant. I have made no changes in the bios and when I pull the ram so the system is 12 gigs again everything with windows runs fine.
