Show the UART log and the exact name of the image where the 2 GB memory is displayed.

Running into the same issue as acj_ and MC68060.  I'll provide what I can but I am not at the level of UART debugging.  I first noticed the lack of memory after installing AIO Nextcloud and watching it grind to a hault in TOP.

I tried Lunar minimal:

I figured it something in the kernal config for Quartz64, I looked over the DTS/DTB but couldn't find anything that I could experiment with.  Would love to use the Armbian image if possible, but I need the full 8gb.  If I can test and device tree changes, I'd be happy too.

Check the version with EDK2.
The latest versions using EDK2 can now be downloaded from the link.

Seems those work to address the full 8gb.  Thank you!

Version 20230122-EDK-EFI. Together with the new EDK2. Added support for Debian (added Debian images).

I don't have a Quartz64 A model with 8 GB of RAM, so I need a UART log to determine the causes of the RAM size limitation problem. Question to the owners of the Quartz64 A model with 8GB of RAM, who can provide the UART log when launching Armbian? I am interested in running a version without EDK2, in extlinux mode, when only 2 GB of RAM is detected.
Alpha version 20230122-EDK-EFI Armbian for SOQuartz + SOQuartz Model-A Baseboard. Kernel 6.2-rc4.

Appreciated and thanks on the build.
Alpha version 20230124edge Armbian for Quartz64-B Kernel 6.2-rc5.
Version 20230125-current Armbian for Quartz64-B Kernel 6.1.6

For all Altlinux 20230123 kernel 6.1.7
Added images from Gnome 3 for Quartz64. Surprisingly for me (I don't use gnome and built it at the user's request) the interface works well. Glmark2 shows on Quartz64-B
