Turning PAE Mode Off? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently noticed that my WSH box cannot go into Hibernation mode if the power fails.

    Trying to enable Hibernation, I got this:

     

    Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]
    
    (C) Copyright 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp.
    
    c:\>powercfg.exe /hibernate on
    
    Hibernation failed with the following error: The request is not supported.
    
    The following items are preventing hibernation on this system.
    
            The system is running in PAE mode, and hibernation is not allowed in PAE mode.
    
    c:\>

    Any way to turn PAE off?   I've only got 4 gigs in the box and don't care (at least I don't *think* I care...) if it only sees 3.

     

    Or is this just a Bad Idea?

  • In boot.ini, remove the "/PAE".

    This information is available on Technet, MSDN, support.microsoft.com., etc. Please learn to use search engines first …


    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
