How can I get a max server memory setting of SQL if it's not running/disalbled?

Never tried it, but you could restore a backup of master with a different name to a running instance and issue:

SELECT  *
FROM master.sys.configurations
WHERE name = 'max server memory (MB)';

No problem. One tweak for clarity. My query should have qualified the table with the new name of master, not master again:

SELECT  *
FROM new_name_of_master.sys.configurations
WHERE name = 'max server memory (MB)';

Was curious so just tried it myself but no dice. sys.configurations uses a rowset and a system view that eventually point back to the real master.

If you connect to the Dedicated Admin Connection (DAC) you can run this query against the restored copy of master to retrieve the previous setting:

SELECT  value AS [max server memory (MB)]
FROM new_name_of_master.sys.sysobjvalues
WHERE valclass = 50
AND objid = 1544;

Yea, I think only way is to start services and check the memory settings.
