"Insufficient Memory in Windows Setup" -- Windows 2003 Backup and Restore
Posted on 2007-03-22
My issue is this: I have to restore a win2k3 server running on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 box, with a PERC 5/i SAS RAID. I'm using Symantec Backup Exec 11d's Intelligent Disaster Recover tool for the backup/restore software. I've gotten a full and complete back up of my server, I've run the IDR prep wizard with out issue, and I've made all my proper driver backups.
The catch is that when restoring the machine, Backup Exec starts the Windows Setup (blue screen) so that I can load any pertinent RAID drivers. During that process you press F6, like normal, to add additional RAID or SCSI drivers. I can find the A:\ drive fine, and I can find the drivers fine. After about 3 minutes of "Loading percsas.sys" I get a prompt that tells me:
"Insufficient memory to load percsas.sys. Press any key to abort".
The machine is currently with out registry (part of our backup/restore testing), so I cannot modify config.ini file. Anyone have any ideas?
