    MBP 7,1 Mid 2010 13" C2D 2.4
    SMC 1.62f7

    OS X 10.10.5
    OS X 10.11 GM candidate

    Under 10.10.5 the system shows bank 0 empty, bank 1 8GB.
    I have done the SMC reset.


    I have tested each stick with the inner / deepest slot and system boots up.
    If two sticks are installed I only see 8GB.

    This is new ram I bought (this is second set. first set I received was bad)

    As of few minutes ago I'm running 16GB.
    Don't know why, but I had to introduce the system slowly to the possibility of more than 8GB.
    I installed 8GB and my original 2GB stick.

    Mid 2010 13" models can run 16GB of RAM, but they're very very picky about the RAM.
