hi hope someone can help.

im running bootcamp and windows xp sp2. i need to edit the boot.ini file in order to allow more ram for my macbook for n application in windows. but when i do it according to searches on google i get many error messages on boot up about .exe file unable to initialize and then the computer crashes.

the original boot.ini file i'm editing contains the following:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


can anyone please suggest something?

thanks

thank you for your response.

im rendering a complex scene in 3d max, as soon as it reaches 1.5GB ram the programme crashes. i need to do the switch and looking for advice on how the boot.ini file should be configured to suit my system. all the ones ive tried force my computer to run slow and then crash. when i revert back to the original boot.ini installed with windows the problem goes but i cant render the scene.

Do you know why the boot.ini is causing to crash? any suggestions on how my configuered boot.ini should look?

thanks

Did you not read the provided links? Why are you under the distinct impression that the /3Gb switch will solve your problem? Do you even understand what it does?
