NTFS4DOS in Win3X

Microsoft Windows 3.11

Specs: Windows 3.1, ???
I'm trying to run Windows 3x under MS-DOS 7.10 which was patched with W3xstart (windows 98) with support for NTFS drives (NTFS4DOS), but when I load NTFS4DOS, windows cannot be loaded in 386 enhanced mode, only in standard mode, but Win32s doesn't work in standard mode, so the problem is NTFS4DOS cause it loads another IO.SYS and therefore windows cannot be loaded ....
In standard mode, Windows 3x recognize NTFS drives and works with them, but that's no good if I can not run in 386 enhanced mode.
Sorry for my English, I used the translator and corrected some mistakes.

PS
I speak Spanish.

the ntfs4dos driver may use protected mode in the background and continue to run dos in what is known as v86 mode. does the windows 3.1 error message say anything about not being able to enter protected mode because a program is already using it? if is is you will have to use a different ntfs driver that doesn't use protected (32bit) mode. I am not sure if ntfs (being a 32bit filesystem) needs 32bit disk access or not. this factor may limit your choices to much less possibilities.

There's a newer version of Calmira that can access NTFS. Google Calmira.net.

Are you sure? Are you confused it with LFN?
