Crash memory dump file created is different from the type selected in Windows 2000 Startup and Recovery settings
Article ID: 837297 - View products that this article applies to.
When a crash dump file is generated, Microsoft Windows 2000 will try to generate a Complete Memory Dump. This scenario occurs even though you selected the Small Memory Dump (64 KB) option or the Kernel Memory Dump option in the Write Debugging Information section of the Startup and Recovery settings. These settings are located on the Advanced tab of System Properties.
This problem occurs when the Windows 2000-based computer has more than 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM.
