Solution
There is no GUI method for enabling the Complete Memory Dump option in windows server 2008. The only way we have to do is the registry editor.
To configure the complete memory dump you need to do it via the registry. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl
Modify CrashDumpEnabled to a decimal value of 1. At present the value for CrashDumpEnabled is 3.
