Windows 95/98 On Vista Laptop?
So I had a funky little idea to put Windows 95-98 on my old Vista laptop. I tried to install it from USB and it worked just fine. Setup even detected my touchpad, but when I booted up Windows for the first time, it gives me this error:
Insufficient memory to initialize Windows.
Quit one or more memory-resident programs or remove unnecessary utilities from your config.sys and autoexec.bat files and restart your computer.
Of course, my laptop having a gigabyte of ram meant problems. I tried to edit the system.ini file to limit the maximum amount of ram, but to no avail. I’m totally fine with any legacy Windows like NT, ME, or 98. I’ll research whether or not NT or ME support 1gb of ram.
Edit: When I installed 95, I selected Portable at setup. Just in case that helps
