      Disabled CSM (which just altogether disappeared from the bios afterwards) and enabled >4G MMIO

        Also had to disable CSM to get to boot normally, otherwise I'd get a constant error "[amdgpu] trn=2 ack should not assert".

              Hi, I only get vram_vis_size of 256MB while I do have the "Above 4G decoding" visible and enabled in the UEFI BIOS.
              This is with Radeon RX560 (4GB VRAM), X399 (Threadripper 1) chipset board and an Asus BIOS.
              What should I check more?

              I read that one may need some UEFI boot (why???) for it. I do have CSM enabled, as I want a normal boot from MBR and via 'lilo' bootloader.
              I could try 'elilo' if it still boots without any EFI partition on the disk.
              Thanks

                It won‘t work with CSM enabled.

                  Ok, but will it still be possible to boot with plain 'lilo' ?

                  And what does the method to boot the OS have to do with the capabilities of the graphics card?

                    It‘s not about the method of booting, at least it doesn’t matter which bootloader is used, just about in what state the firmware is when booting. There are certainly reasons why BIOS mode can‘t do it.

                      Legacy sbios modes put all MMIO apertures under 4GB for 32 bit compatibility. You need an extended MMIO aperture above 4GB in order to resize the BARs.
