Can buffered and non buffered ram be installed together in one machine?
I've never seen a motherboard that could handle both types of memory, not to mention mixing them. Do you have a motherboard that can handle both types?
This memory supplier
states that they can't be mixed and require different memory controllers.
A memory module that contains buffers. Buffers re-drive the signals through the memory chips and allow the module to include more memory chips. Buffered and unbuffered memory cannot be mixed. The design of the computer memory controller dictates whether memory must be buffered or unbuffered."
I don't know if that makes them "experts", but hey...
