a gentleman by the name of Rudolph Loew made patches for dos windows to handle lots of memory and also talk with massive disks.
here is a link to a cache of his works for everyone to research and i have made virtual machines running massive amounts of memory and disk space.
His works are on archive.org too perhaps a system where these patches can make bare bones run better with this project or even virtual machines. I am now making such a virtual machine and uploading to archive as demonstration.
here is a Vogon link for information: Rudolph Loew apparently passed away in September 2019
