Win 3.1 VGA.drv not found

Hi there.

I got a little problem with my i486 PC. I needed to reinstall MS-DOS 6.22 because for some reason it had corrupted itself. But after I reinstalled it and all the drivers I was unable to boot into Windows 3.1. Does anyone know why I cannot boot into winddows? I tried reinstalling windows, but the installer keeps crashing. It was an error with vga.drv not found mixed with another one which I cannot remember. I'm kind of sad that I cannot go into Windows 3.1 anymore because I used it for a lot of word processing stuff.

Simply expand that file from installation disks into the Windows directory. Replace any existing copy in case it is corrupt.

Turns out it was an issue with my RAM configuration. Wondows does not like booting with 20mbytes of RAM.
