I am using Windows 7 with 4GB patch kernel. It's normal when I using normal kernal of Windows 7. After patched kernal, the colinux occur blue screen. It's means it cannot run on Windows Server 2008 x86 with 4GB+ System? My coLinux is built on Ubuntu 9.03, 1GB memory and version 0.7.6.

    The problem is AWE (Address_Windowing_Extensions) can't handle by coLinux.
    See also forum entry "How to let coLinux run in large RAM"

    Only what we can do, is to disallow the start. For that I need your help.

    Please set the follow registry entry:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\coLinux]
    "Debug"=dword:0000001f
    Download and start the DbgView.exe from http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/DebugView.zip
    Re-Load coLinux driver with these commands:
    cd CurentColinuxPath
    colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver
    colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver
    You should see messages in DbgView, like
    "loaded to host kernel"
    "machine has ... MB of RAM"
    The value of your total RAM would be interesting here. Is that exactly 4GB, or more?
