I have an older Dell Optiplex GX240 and when I do a mem /c |more it shows DOSX loaded only in upper memory using 34K. Now, I have a NEW Dell Optiplex 745 and DOSX is running in Conventional memory using 34k AND in Upper using .01k (128). I need DOSX to run ONLY in upper memory. I have checked my config.nt and autoexec.nt files and everything is set as it should be. actually, those files on the GX240 and the 745 are identical. Can anyone help??
