    One RAM slot is out so I wanted to cram as much RAM as possible to the one remaining.

    From my understanding you have one RAM slot that can't be used at all, so the usual recommended 2 x 4GB 204-pin 1066 MHz PC3-8500 DDR3 SO-DIMM SDRAM configuration is not an option.

    It would help if you provide the exact model of Macbook Pro, not just the year, but on face value a single 8GB RAM module might not appear to be compatible, or perhaps no one has tried it.

    Is this your Macbook Pro?

    If you don't get any definitive answer here, you might want to try Crucial or OWC. Crucial forums are here:

    Or you could ask their customer support.
