2GB windows 95/98

Post: # 148Post FreakingEIGHT »

Hi
This is my first post, and i wanted to ask what would it take to actually patch windows 95 or 98 to support more than 1gb ram (2gb max because 32 bit limit). The CONFIG.SYS fix is just limiting it.
Maybe someone technical will help me out?
Cheers

Alright

Add the following line to your SYSTEM.INI file in the "[386enh]" section:

MaxPhysPage=40000 (I'm pretty sure this limits it to 4GB?)

Save the file and Then restart your 98 VM/computer

Hi, that just limits the RAM to 1GB.

Look for
C:\[Windows directory]\SYSTEM.INI
and edit it. Go to the line containing
[386Enh]
Add
MaxPhysPage=40000
into that section. Save the
SYSTEM.INI
file containing the modifications. Then reboot your system.

By the way, this might not work with Windows 95. I haven't tested it.

Try it on Windows 98.

If it still doesn't work then try adding more zeroes to
MaxPhysPage

Hope it works ;)
