Several days ago i have installed windows98 se on my computer.
My system have 1gb of internal memmory.
When i try to boot windows98 se, i get an error V86mmgr.
It tells me i dont have enough memmory to inizialize windows.
It tells me i have 4mb of memmory, and i must load sbinit before smartdrive.
When i remove 512mb, windows98 starts up normally.
It looks like windows98 cant count to 1gb.
Does anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?
Altough i have read about the ndis error when you have a cpu that is faster then 2.2ghz, i dont have this problem, although my computer runs at 2.8ghz.

Asus ax4spe-un mainboard.
Twinmos 1gb DC DDR memmory
Maxtor 250gb harddisk
soundblaster live 5.1

Thank you for reading this message.

the upper limit of recognisable physical system memory is ~500MB for 98 without getting lotsa weird errors; its da nature of da beast
After all is invested in correctness, then how does it stand with truth?
