430VX RAM limit

Post by omarsis81 »

I noticed that the chipset 430VX has a RAM limit of 128 MB, and, of course, Shuttle HOT 557's manual states that max memory is 128 MB. However, in PCem you can set up to 256 MB. BIOS and Windows detects 256 memory without problems. Is that limitation rised on purpose? Is it a bug ment to be fixed?

Technically it's a bug, but it's useful when testing more recent OSes to go above 128. So I don't intend to 'fix' it for now.
