Memdisk: bootstrap too large to load



  • Hello guys,

    First of all, thanks for your amazing work.
    I’m using FOG 1.3.5-RC-14, and noticed that I can’t boot small things like HDD Regenerator anymore… I get the title message error (Memdisk: bootstrap too large to load)
    There’s my config:

    :MENU
    menu
    item hirens Hirens 15.2
    item hddreg111 HDD Regenerator 1.11
    item hddreg171 HDD Regenerator 1.71
    item acronis Acronis True Imagem 19
    item return return to previous menu
    choose target && goto ${target} || goto MENU
    :hirens
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/iso/utils/hirens.iso
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    echo failed to boot
    prompt
    goto MENU
    :hddreg111
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/iso/utils/hddreg.img
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    echo failed to boot
    prompt
    goto MENU
    :hddreg171
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/iso/utils/hddreg171.iso
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    echo failed to boot
    prompt
    goto MENU
    :acronis
    initrd http://${fog-ip}/iso/utils/acronis.iso
    chain memdisk iso raw ||
    echo failed to boot
    prompt
    goto MENU
    :return
    chain ${boot-url}/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac=${net0/mac} ||
    prompt
    goto MENU
    

    Just so you guys know, Hirens and Acronis boot normally. I probably missing something but I already looked into the other topics about this and couldn’t find anything.

    Edited to use Code block.



  • So, I gave up on the .IMG and I’m searching for ISOs, which are working perfectly, accordingly to what I need. Thanks for your concern.

    From what I’m seeing, 2011 IS the most recent one (although it is old in and of itself.)

    What’s concerning me is I can’t seem to find a “valid” downloadable iso for it. I Found a place which gives me an EXE (which I don’t trust for any software claiming to need to be installed on cd or usb).



  • @Tom-Elliott The new one, I tried another ISO version and it worked. The old one, is with us since 2011 if I’m not mistaken. I tried another files *.img like ghost.img and memtest.img but get the same error, it worked in 1.2.0 by the way. Please, don’t bother too much about it, it’s is just an older version of HDD Regenerator that we really like and wanted to stop using USB sticks to boot it.

    @itsl3v1s Where did you download the file?



  • @Tom-Elliott It is a bootable image used in USB sticks… the newer version is already ISO but shows the same error.

    What is hddreg.img?

    This appears to be a portion of another grouping of files.

    The way you have it loaded right now, you ahve it trying to be booted like an ISO, which most likely is not the intended action.
