Will try the next suggestion, although I couldn't find VCACHE.VXD. I wonder what path it is in >

When I booted to DOS, and did a recursive 'dir' to search for VCACHE.VXD, it did not find the file, inside the c:\windows path.
I downloaded the Q194827.EXE file, booted to DOS again, and got a "This program cannot be run in DOS mode".

Btw, the file FIXCPU.ISO only conatins one file - DUN14-95.EXE , is that okay ? Seems weird for an image of a boot disk.
VCACHE.VXD is merged into VMM32.VXD along with several other VXD's during the second phase of SETUP, so you won't find the file after that.
All MS HotFixes require Windows to run. Pretty useless when you can't boot to Windows to begin with.
That's why I created FIX95CPU to install the updated CPU fixes. In order to update your VCACHE.VXD, you will need to manually extract VCACHE.OSR (it contains two VCACHE files, one for 95/95A and one for 95B/95C) from the HotFix file I linked, rename it to VCACHE.VXD, and manually place it in your WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32 folder.
The Boot Image of an .ISO is not visible without tools for viewing/extracting/editing etc. FIX95CPU.ISO contains a boot image of the FIX95CPU floppy, with DUN14-95.EXE added to the "normal" part of the ISO for convenience.
I wish you success in your endeavor, but in my personal experience, if you want to use more than 512MB of RAM, you will need RLoew's RAM Limitation Patch.
Several users here report success using up to ~1.5GB with the tweaks you have been experimenting with, but those tweaks never worked on any of my systems. (Also, many of those users are using 98SE, which may handle the larger RAM amounts better than standard 95B/C can.) The patch has a DEMO version that runs for 10 minutes. You might try downloading it and see if it cures your problem.
