Subject Re: Display disk sizes

1GiB = 1024x1024*1024 and 1GB = 1000*1000*1000
HDD sizes will be rounded down to nearest 4GiB.
The E2B menu shows the values reported by the BIOS in GB (not GiB) it is nothing to do with UEFI since we are in Legacy\CSM\BIOS mode.
So Disk size will depend on disk geometry reported by BIOS and RAM size will depend on what is reported by the BIOS in normal real mode as usable free RAM - often the graphics uses memory and there are unused 'holes' in the memory. If I create a VM in VBOX with 2560MB RAM then E2B reports 2560 for B64.
As for the NVME - I am not quite sure why that is showing as 2TB - possibly because the BIOS does not 'see' it and so the next hard disk you have in your system is 2TB or larger? Some BIOSes only 'see' a PCIe M.2 drive in UEFI mode.
P.S. Try latest 1.B6a Beta - it should be more accurate for HD sizes.
