    Limited Virtual Memory - Pagefile Increase...???
    Dear friends,
    I am confronted with a typical problem and am almost at my wits end.
    I have two HDD:
    Disk One 80 GB two partitions C and D on windows xp
    Disk two 160 GB on three partitions E F and G on windows advanced server 2000
    I have no problems as regards the first HDD in which I can work easily.
    BUT when i boot from second HDD; it says while almost about to start that-
    There is Limited Virtual Memory and asks to increase pagefile.sys.
    I had no idea about this but i did a lot of reading and increased pagefile in all drives and partitions.
    Still when I boot from 160 GB running on windows advanced server 2000; it shows error message that increase your pagefile and as a result i am unable to use it.
    I am attaching two screenshots which may help in understanding my problem and possibly solving the error.

    You've right clicked on 'My Computer' gone to 'Properties' gone to 'Advanced' and then selected 'Performence' and changed the Virtual Memory size? You have to do this in the Operating system that's giving you the problems. Setting the pagefile through other OS's doesn't change the size of the pagefile in the one thats giving ou problems.

    You should not have mulitple pagefiles per OS either. The pagefile preferably should be on a separate disk if possible. So, if you are on Disk 0 (XP), you'd want its pagefile on Disk 1 (Server OS) and vs.

    Then you're out of luck. You can try to boot Windows Server 2000 Advanced Server into Safe Mode and see if you can fix it there. If you can't change it in Safe Mode then you're out of luck.

    Boot into Safe Mode with XP:
    1. Remove all pagefiles from each partition
    2. Add only one pagefile for Windows XP... add it to HDD1
    3. Reboot to XP
    Boot into Safe Mode with Server:
    1. Remove all pagefiles from each partition
    2. Add only one pagefile for Windows Server... add it to HDD0
    3. Reboot to Server
    This should help.
