"Not enough memory" message when converting to FAT32


If you receive the message: "Not enough memory - change the config and the autoexec", copy the existing Autoexec.bat & Config.sys files to a temporary directory, then edit the original Autoexec.bat & Config.sys files, and delete their contents, so that you have just 2 empty files.

Note: If you are loading real-mode display drivers, change the display settings in Windows 98 to VGA, and change back after the conversion.

Restart Windows 98 and run the FAT32 converter. When succeeded, copy your original Autoexec.bat & Config.sys files back to the root (C:\) directory, overwriting the empty ones you created.

If you still get the "Not enough memory" message, try the suggestions from this Microsoft Knowledge Base Article No. 188561.
