Windows 7: Crash dump initialization failed! EventID 46

Crash dump initialization failed! EventID 46

I have been getting this error message in my Event Viewer log ever since.I have even reinstalled my OS (Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64),and the issue came at the very beginning.

Interestingly,almost everyone here reports this error with BSOD cases,but not on my machine.

I can't figure out whats causing this,if there is a specific program or faulty piece of hardver.

What comes on my mind is the fact that I have dual boot,with Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 as primary system,and Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 installed afterwards.

The only change I've made on Windows XP is,to "make it blind" for Windows 7 Ultimate,in order to enable recording System Restore points on my Win 7 system,using a .reg file,which is accompanied with this post.

I hope someone has the answer,since I've been roaming the internet for several months,but no good.

Looking forward.

Pagefile.sys is on the same partition where I installed Windows 7 Ultimate SP1,and it weights 1.99 GB.

One thing of note. You are at the absolute minimum RAM for 64bit.

Your page file doesnt have enough room to write 2 gigs of ram to it.
