>>Can we keep the current interface, and automatically add/remove dimms? 

The main problem is:

- we can only hotplug memory of multiple of 128MB

-for unplug, 
if user have hotplugged dimm of 128MB, then dimm of 512MB, then dimm of 1G

I don't known how to manage the downgrade field.



1 possibility could be, allow only hotplug of 128MB module. (this allow 32G of hotplug memory with 255 slots).
Then it's easy to upgrade/downgrade, with a fixed step of 128.

(and maybe add an global option to fix the dimm size)

No, we can add an extra tab to display detailed information for advanced user. 
In the hardware tab, I would like to keep displaying the overall sum of memory. 

And I also want to have a simple way to add/remove RAM. 
Can we keep the current interface, and automatically add/remove dimms?
