Limited Virtual Memory - Pagefile Increase...?

Dear friends,

I am confronted with a typical problem and am almost at my wits end.

I have two HDD

Disk One 80 GB two partitions C and D on windows xp
Disk two 160 GB on three partitions E F and G on windows advanced server 2000

I have no problems as regards the first HDD in which I can work easily.

BUT when i boot from second HDD; it says while almost about to start that-

There is Limited Virtual Memory and asks to increase pagefile.sys.

I had no idea about this but i did a lot of reading and increased pagefile in all drives and partitions.

Still when I boot from 160 GB running on windows advanced server 2000; it shows error message that increase your pagefile.

Anxioustly awaiting replies.

Best regards,

Sunando

The normal recommendation is to allocate 1.5 times the amount of physical RAM in the computer for the pagefile. How much RAM do you have, and how much space did you allocate for the virtual memory?

What is the exact error that is being displayed? When does it appear? What happens if you dismiss the error? Are you able to boot at all?

Have you ever been able to run this OS?

I am not able to take a screenshot since when i go into HDD on which windows advanced server 2000 is loaded....it gives a screen before being fully loaded ...as a result i am not in a position to take any screenshot...

but it says "your system has no pagefile or the pagefile is too small"

i did try to increase page file through all permutations and combinations...but its not helping...

and unfortunately in webmasterworld they do not allow screenshots to be posted (thats why the screenshot of pagefile was removed most probably)...

if i say ok to the error...the screen goes and nothing happens until i manually press restart button on the computer

yes in the past it was working fine except three days back it started behaving like this...

I'm not sure if this will work, it depends on server and XP using the same HDD file system, but:

Try booting from your XP drive, then check the server drive for errors and viruses.

You could also delete the pagefile. I had a similar problem restoring a Win2K system from a Ghost backup. Deleting the pagefile caused the OS to create a new one.
