It looks roughly like this:
BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 00000000000a0000 (usable)
BIOS-e820: 0000000000100000 - 00000000bfb50000 (usable)
BIOS-e820: 00000000bfb50000 - 00000000bfb66000 (reserved)
BIOS-e820: 00000000bfb66000 - 00000000bfb85c00 (ACPI data)
BIOS-e820: 00000000bfb85c00 - 00000000c0000000 (reserved)
BIOS-e820: 00000000e0000000 - 00000000f0000000 (reserved)
BIOS-e820: 00000000fe000000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved)
BIOS-e820: 0000000100000000 - 0000000440000000 (usable)
