low memory error during boot

  • Windows NT has found only 0K of low memory.  512K of low memory is required to run Windows NT.  You may need to upgrade your computer or run a configuration program provided by the manufacturer.
  • Backstory would be helpful.  What model, how much physical RAM?  Does BIOS see the RAM?  Does a DOS boot floppy see it?  Dells won't boot with 'zero' RAM installed.  Either something is filling it, or WNT isn't seeing it.
