Ok, how could I detect how much memory was stolen? In dmesg I see following lines: [ 0.000000] e820: BIOS-provided physical RAM map: [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000000000000-0x0000000000057fff] usable [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000000058000-0x0000000000058fff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000000059000-0x000000000008bfff] usable [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x000000000008c000-0x000000000009ffff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000000e0000-0x00000000000fffff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000000100000-0x00000000ab908fff] usable [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000ab909000-0x00000000abb08fff] type 20 [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000abb09000-0x00000000acbfefff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000acbff000-0x00000000acd7efff] ACPI NVS [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000acd7f000-0x00000000acdfefff] ACPI data [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000acdff000-0x00000000acdfffff] usable [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000f80f8000-0x00000000f80f8fff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x00000000fed1c000-0x00000000fed1ffff] reserved [ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: [mem 0x0000000100000000-0x000000024dffffff] usable [ 0.000000] Reserving Intel graphics memory at 0x00000000ae000000-0x00000000afffffff [ 0.000000] Memory: 7972840K/8282704K available (6196K kernel code, 1159K rwdata, 2848K rodata, 1408K init, 688K bss, 309864K reserved, 0K cma-reserved) > The BIOS may or may not provide a knob to change the size > of the stolen memory. In BIOS Setup screen I have option to choose GPU memory and I set it to max 512MB. So this is not the right option...
