Hi Experts,

Could you please let me know if we have any ISO file size restrictions when using the 2 stage boot process on the 2nd image that actually needs the system to be reimaged to?

Thanks!

Regards

Hi Praveen,

the 2 stage ISO works by copying the "big" ISO into a ramdisk and then booting from this ramdisk. I do not know the actual size of this ramdisk, but I tried to boot a plain Windows 7 ISO (3.4GB) and it failed as well.

Booting your 4GB image on a 4GB of memory machine will be almost next to impossible using this method.

I guess making the ramdisk size modular through the ISO Builder is probably a good idea.

I hope this helps a bit.

Frank
