SUMMARY

This article describes the SystemROMBreakPoint setting in the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file

MORE INFORMATION

The SystemROMBreakPoint setting specifies whether Windows should use Read Only Memory (ROM) address space between F000:0000 and 1 MB for a break point. Windows typically searches this space to find a special instruction that is used as a system break point. If this address space contains something other than permanently available ROM, turn off this setting. To turn off the SystemROMBreakPoint setting, use one of the following methods:
  • Use Notepad.exe to edit the System.ini file and set SystemROMBreakPoint=False.
  • Start Windows 95 or later with the command-line switch "/d:s". For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
