Hello Vogons users.
I have been looking at my Window 3.1 Hard disk image on PCem. And it has like 6095 Cylinders and 2999 megabytes. And I am questioning if using the 32 Bit disk access will work on my Windows 3.1 VM on PCem...
According to this source I found here
https://www.rigacci.org/docs/biblio/online/fi … re/win32bda.htm
What is saying that "The 32BitDiskAccess driver that is supplied with Windows 3.1x, WDCTRL, is limited to hard drives with 1024 cylinders or less (504MB or less). If a larger hard drive is installed and 32BitDiskAccess is enabled, Windows may lock up or freeze when started or it may return an error message such as "Insufficient memory to start Windows..." or "WDCTRL validation failed at phase XX,XX"."
Would using a program driver like 32 Bit Disk Access will work on a 2 GB DOS/Windows 3.1 hard disk, have you tried using 32BitDiskAccess on a Windows 3.1 2GB hard disk and ran into some problems like mentioned on the source I found? And is 2GB large for a Windows 3.1 hard disk?
Please leave me some answers. Thank you.
