Help booting Symantec Rescue Disk - not enough memory to create ramdisk device
I use Ghost 15 and it usually works great (I run Ghost recovery off a bootable grub4dos usb stick). I recently performed a cold backup of a PC using the Ghost 15 recovery environment. When restoring the backup from the Ghost recovery environment to the same PC, as the restore was 99% completed, I was prompted to enter an additional disk. Of course, I didn't have the disk the restore process was looking for and the restore process returned an error and did not successfully complete.
I understand that this is a bug in Ghost 15 and that the restore process somehow thinks I'm restoring to a different machine and is looking for files from Symantec's PC Anywhere. So I did as has been suggested in this forum and downloaded the Symantec Rescue Disk that comes with Symantec System Restore 2013. I copied the 32-bit ISO to my USB stick and created the following entry in menu.lst:
# Symantec System Recovery - Symantec Recovery Disk
title Symantec Recovery Disk
find --set-root /ISO/SSR188.8.131.52662_AllWin_English_SrdOnly.iso
map /ISO/SSR184.108.40.206662_AllWin_English_SrdOnly.iso (hd32)
The iso is contiguous on the USB stick. When launching, I immediately receive the following error message:
"There isn't enough memory available to create a ramdisk device." Error code is 0xc0000017
The system in question has 512MB of memory. I am able to boot the Ghost 15 ISO from the same USB stick and it's larger at 394MB while the SRD ISO is 381MB.
