I have a Dual Xeon (2.8) Server with 4gb RAM, running Server 2008 and Exchange 2007 (1tb RAID 1 disks).  I have over 700gb left on the array and I am having problems with virtual memory.  based on the above, what should I commit to VM and just to be precise, what EXACTLY should I enter in the min and max fields when I make the change?

Microsoft recommends to use 1.5 times your RAM size if your RAM is less than 8gb.

If you have 6gb RAM, then configure your virtual memory as 9gb (1.5 times). Do you have enough hard disk space on the C drive?

Done.  Looks like I have other issues though....

Boots in safe mode no problem, when I boot normally it just hangs on the press ctrl alt del screen, does not respond to keystrokes.  Any ideas to start troubleshooting?
