J7F4 only has one RAM slot. I'd seen similar behavior on my J7F2 (only
sees 512MB of a 1GB stick, doesn't boot from PATA), the solution was
some different code to initialize IDE. I no longer have that board
though (it died about a year ago, and I didn't replace it), so I have
no real way to test it out. The code may be kicking around in the v2
