Sounds like its trying to load the 2-3GB ISO image into RAM and runs out of memory (which sounds logical if you have less that 2gb of RAM). Also I may be shooting into the dark but I believe there is a limit to how large a image (ISO or otherwise) can be before you run into other constraints other than just physical memory available (say the bootloader only can read isos 4gb and less but you have 8gb of physical ram).

Depending on what the ISO (is it linux OS, Windows installer, etc., etc..) you can find a method on extracting it using Syslinux or grub to load up the individual files.

More info on what the ISO is will help.

If it really an ISO and not a hard disk image, you need 'APPEND iso' (but then your file normally would have .iso at the end of the filename and not .img)

Code: Select all

LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/myimagename.img
APPEND iso

How much RAM do you have? You need at least as much as the size of the ISO (a bit more if you want to boot this ISO).
