Scandisk out of memory on 147GB SATA RAID
Posted on 2004-10-16
I just upgraded to new hardware with 2 Western Digital 74GB 10,000 RPM Raptors in RIAD 0 configuration, using the 378 Promise RAID chipset on an ASUS P4C 800E Deluxe motherboard. Everything went well, the MS hotfix for the 3.4GHz P4 speed issue did not run, but there is a new CPUID 0 parameter in the AMI BIOS which can be enabled so that the OS reads a value less than 3 and that allowed Windows 98SE to run at standard speed at 3.4 GHz. I then installed the network neighborhood and a few rudimentary items, a USB printer even worked, although the Intel USB 2.0 patch also did not do what the instructions said, it just flashed really fast so that I could not tell what it was doing, there were no files in any directory, despite the fact that it said it would expand a list of files in a subdirectory, which it would create when I ran the self-extracting file. Well, the slower older USB 1.1 printer worked, so I did not argue.
But when I run scandisk from My Computer -> SATA RAID Drive C:\ -> Properties -> Tools -> Check Now -> Start – I get the error message "ScanDisk could not continue because your computer does not have enough available memory. If any other programs are running, quit one or more of them and then try running ScanDisk again."
The 2 Raptors amount to 147 GB and I told FDISK to use all the available space with 32-bit file system – do I need to stay under 137 GB or lower? I have 512 MB of memory, which the system sees and which works well – everything is brand-new and works fast. Is there a System.ini
