Maxmem in Windows 7 / 8 / 10


Recommended Posts

I recently had some trouble getting maxmem to work in my Windows 10. If I set maxmem in msconfig to e.g. 4000 it always resulted in 1.5 GB after reboot. I tried several things and in the end I found that this is working:


Run CMD as admin and use this command line:


bcdedit /set removememory 27000


27000 will remove 27000 MB of the available memory. Using 32 GB you will have ~5.5 GB with this maxmem setting.


Maybe you are all already aware of this but in case you had the same problem it might help you.

Hi, just wanted to ask, how to "addmemory" :) 

Also is there some way, how to "recover" system, where i did remove 12gb and system stuck without loading ? (it was at 2,2 with or without maxmem) Or i have to made new copy. 

Thanks :)
