If you find that the Win 2003 installer cannot find a location for the swap file, these instructions may help.
I think you are translating the message, its meaning, and this message means that no spaces were found for the file being edited.
It’s been a while since I installed XP, but I think it tries to create a swap file first, usually related to the size associated with your fixed storage (like doubled RAM). The message, if I understood it correctly, means that there is not enough free space on your replaced disk.
For example, if you have a specific maximum of 4 GB of RAM (for a 32-bit operating system), you would need a file of that size for hibernation (
hiberfil.sys ), a positive value Replace the file with 8 GB at time (
pagefile.sys ), which means you will need at least 12 GB more than the number of individual files installed, so I recommend a target disk of 64 GB or more.
If you are installing as part of a virtual machine, setting up a larger virtual device is easy — you can also make the item extensible. You can also slightly reduce the RAM of the corresponding virtual New machine to reduce swap / hibernation overhead.
If you are installing on a specific hard drive, you will need a larger hard drive, or you will need to remove or disable RAM modules.
After the system is properly installed and the user boots up, he can change the location and size of the swap submission (but not the specific hibernation file).
By the way, the rule of thumb that the swap size is twice the amount of RAM is pretty bad: the appropriate swap space depends on the number and size of programs running, and should usually also be in RAM. the size is reduced.

Due to the death of my office star, I installed a Western Digital hard drive in my Dell enclosure. I managed to get it to work, but I decided to reformat it in all aspects of the desktop and some other applications. I get the same error when reformatting together with fdisk and Western Digital hard drive software, for example whentrying to install a decent new system (XP Pro or Win2k). The error message is “Unable to purchase paging file space” and I get this as soon as I run winnt from the i386 folder. I changed the jumper sets to cable selection, no wizard anymore and reformatted the hardware query with NTFS and FAT32 …. same post that Eben tried, only with 128KB of RAM (both sticks) … same result.
I reformatted a particular flavor differently due to using Fat32 and NTFS as the partition used, with two partitions and still actually getting the result. I can’t go to the XP install part to customize partition a.
I also used fdisk from the correct Win98 boot disk and Western Digital Ontrack. I even tried using XP / 6 – the boot hard drive defined by the boot drive, but I had no luck.
I also tried to use the CD’s range of motion as the first boot device, and in addition, I even tried to separate the floppy from the boot sequence. If Thu, if I don’t boot from floppy, I still can’t start. load basic installation …
