This issue can occur if the system has a very large memory installed (for example, 256 gigabytes [GB] or more) and the system drive is of lower capacity (for example, 50 GB).
For testingIf your system has 512 GB of RAM and 50 GB of system drive, when you try to install Windows, a 43-GB page file is created. This can fill up the drive and cause the installation of Windows to fail.
This behavior is improved in Windows Server 2016. Windows Server 2016 creates a 6-GB page file for a system that has the same configuration.
