If your System event log contains:
Event ID 43
Description: Crash dump is disabled! NT failed to initialize the boot
partition paging file for crash dump. This may be because the system has more
than 3.8 gigabytes of physical memory.</b>
Use Control Panel / System / Performance / Change to set the Initial Size and Maximum Size (on the %SystemRoot% partition) to at least RAM + 12.
NOTE: Initial Size and Maximum Size should always be the same to prevent fragmentation of the pagefile space.
Configure Dr. Watson using Control Panel / System / Startup/Shutdown.
Minimum recommended Pagefile size:
|16 - 96||RAM * 2|
|128 - 256||RAM * 1.5|
|>256||RAM + 12|
If you have a SCSI controller and additional physical drive(s), you can create the additional pagefile space on the least used drive(s). Never place more than 1 pagefile on a physical drive.
