      Description

      Created an attachment (id=6865)
      ROS BOOTCD running out of virtual memory on 16MB system

      Unlike ReactOS 0.3.11 which can complete file copying from CD and FreeLDR installation with a machine only having 20MB memory, trunk fails completely here.

      Setup environment: QEMU 0.15.0, SeaBIOS 1.6.3, latest pre-compiled ReactOS DbgWin trunk ISO.

      04MB: FreeLDR crash (heap)
      08MB: FreeLDR crash (heap)
      12MB: Automatic reboot after trying to load a few drivers
      16MB: GUI seen, file copy freezes
      20MB: file copy freezes
      24MB: file copy freezes
      28MB: file copy freezes

      Note this is with phase 1 formatting the installation partition before file copying. That also implies being able to place a swapfile already as you've got sufficient writeable space.

      (P:\Trunk_slave\x86_CMake\build\ntoskrnl\mm\pagefile.c:156) MM: Out of swap space.
