Solved Windows 98 And 1GB RAM

  • 0

I have heard that Windows 98 doesn’t support more than 512MB RAM.

However, I successfully installed and am running it with 1GB RAM. I’m
running on a D845GEBV2 motherboard.

I would think it would either work -or not- work, I wonder why there
is so much variation, according to what I have read online.

See here and here.

In other news, I also found that installing setpoint241enu.exe gave me
immediate access to my 8GB SanDisk Cruzer and SD media card
reader on Windows 98 by using the updated USB Mass Storage driver
included in that package (C:\Program Files\SetPoint\Drivers\Win98).

  1. The answer is yes. Windows 9x can be patched to use up to 4GB of RAM.
    I run 1.5GB on my current setup in 98SE, but I have a machine under construction that will be using 4GB.

    See these pages:…

    And the screenshots in this post:…

    And the idea that Windows 9x will not “use” over 512MB is ridiculous, another of the various 9x myths.
