1. A computer-implemented method for initializing a memory channel storage (“MCS”) device, the computer-implemented method comprising performing computer-implemented operations for:
beginning a boot process for a computing system by beginning execution of a firmware;
determining that prior address data is stored for the MCS device in a storage device physically separate from the MCS device, wherein the MCS device is installed in a dual in-line memory module slot, and wherein the prior address data is present in the storage device prior to the beginning of the boot process; and
responsive to a determination that the prior address data is stored for the MCS device, reserving an address range for the MCS device based on the prior address data.
