SYMPTOMS

When you restart a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer that is using a Microsoft iSCSI Boot Initiator 2.03 boot solution, an event is logged in the System event log that resembles the following:

Event ID: 49
Source: FTDISK
Description: "Configuring the Page file for crash dump failed. Make sure there is a page file on the boot partition and that it is large enough to contain all physical memory."

CAUSE
