Got some question about this, today, outdated bios feature. So here is an anwers that should work out.
When the system memory is more than 64MB in size, OS/2 differs from other operating systems (OS) in the way it manages the RAM. However, this is only true for older versions of OS/2. If you are still running an older version of IBM's OS/2 operating system, you will need to select OS/2.
Starting with OS/2 Warp v3.0 or if you have installed the FixPaks that IBM has been releasing over the years, you should select Non-OS/2 instead. Otherwise, it will cause erroneous memory detection, i.e. if you have 64MB of RAM, it may only register as 16MB or if you have more than 64MB of RAM, it may register as only 64MB of RAM.
