Issues with ram upgrade

Text:

This is the Mac mini Server 2011 i7 Model. [br]
[br]
So I bought this kit.[br]
 
 
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SNM1LHS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[br]
 
 
[br]
 
 
The issue is the following. When I put a 8GB module on the bottom slot. I get the 3 beeps 5 seconds pause error. When I put it on the top module it works. [br]
 
 
[br]
 
 
So now I have the original 2 GB stick on the bottom slot and a 8GB module on the top slot. The computer is working and it says it has 10GB of Ram. [br]
 
 
[br]
 
 
Nonetheless I don’t understand why the bottom slot doesn’t work with the 8GB module?
