Loading SCO OS Loading SCO OS ttownsend54 (Programmer) (OP) 5 May 15 15:00 I get the following error message when trying to load SCO 5.0.5 to new PC: Loading ram disk image fd(64) root FS Memory excessively fragmented (in use map full) Cannot load ramdisk: unable to allocate memory What is my problem? Desperately need help. RE: Loading SCO OS fredericofonseca (IS/IT--Management) 5 May 15 19:09 is that under vmware or as a raw SCO partition? but there are plenty of examples on net for that message so surprised you didn't look at some of them such as https://communities.vmware.com/message/1184581 which will apply regardless of being vmware or raw. you may need to adapt the values to your own machine idealy you would get oss644a or a more recent one which addresses this issue Regards Frederico Fonseca SysSoft Integrated Ltd www.syssoft-int.com FAQ219-2884: How Do I Get Great Answers To my Tek-Tips Questions?

There is a problem with the boot floppy that causes it to fail but it has been so long since I've used that method that I can't remember more than to use 5.0.4 boot.
