instal from this package - not complette (xp not supported)

instal from original windows drivers is complette, but not working

after add Items to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Ramdisk\Parameters and restart - not working

if i change original xp files RAMDISK.INF and  RAMDISK.SYS to files(+dllcache) from top ms link - not working.


All is installed (controller+volume), but RAM disk is not visible in UI and canĀ“t configure it.

What is the registry path for the configuration?

Ok, solved - this must be recompiled for XP.

I try it with WDK 7600.16385.1 and RAM disk is under XP SP3 now working

-but max size is only 32MB...


if you want to try it, dwnload is in the attachment


1/Extract all files from archive to any folder and copy here your ramdisk.inf from \WINDOWS\inf\ directory
2/Delete or rename ramdisk.sys in \WINDOWS\system32\dllcache
3/Add new hardware-->yes hardware is installed-->add new hardware-->select from list-->view all-->,from FDD-->.use folder, where is extracted this driver and install it.
