I have a new 512 mb RAM and i wonder if i can run it with Windows 95 B version?
If not: How can i do so Windows 95 B can run with 512 mb ram?

I have 160 mb now and it's in a bad shape. More then 10000 errors with Memtest86+.


Edit: I found something here.
Is it true?

Yes. You can use up to 512MB of RAM with unmodified Windows 95 B.

Beyond 512MB, modifications are required. See this thread for a complete list of collected info regarding larger amounts of RAM.

That Microsoft KB article (KB181594) is very misleading. Windows 9x cannot use that much RAM without RLoew's RAM Limitation Patch, which will allow you to use up to 4GB with Windows 9x.

Is this also true of Win 95 A, that one can go as far as 512 MB without tweaks?

I have no personal experience with Windows 95 RTM or 95 A. I'll have to refer this question to RLoew, who did some work with those systems during the work on v. 7.0 of the RAM Limitation Patch.

If I recall correctly, it does.
