NTVDM error - Program too big for memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did a search before I posted this question to not get flamed.

    I didn't use my WHS for over 5 months and went to add files today. It froze up and I could not get it to reboot. I did a reinstall and could not install any of my drivers. Every time I clicked on the .exe, I get a cmd box that pops up really fast. It says " Program too big for memory". If I run as Admin it says "NTVDM encountered a hard error".

    I tried to install on a few hard drives and got the same thing every time. I tried a different PC with another HDD and different memory and got the same thing. WHS installs fine, I just cant get any drivers or anything for that matter installed. I spent about 6hrs installing and troubleshooting, any assistance is appreciated. I'm at my wits end with this.
