You downloaded the bootable media to use it for recovery. You create an empty VM and start it with the ISO image.
You receive this error:
Unable to load initial ramdisk.
After pressing Enter, you receive this error:
The issue can be caused by one of these two reasons:
- Malfunctioning ISO image (the download could have corrupted the file)
- Insufficient RAM
- badly written media (CD, flash drive)
Note that according to the following article of the User Guide, the Bootable media or a disk recovery with a reboot requires at least 1 GB of memory.
- Check if the RAM is sufficient for the target machine. In case it is not, adjust the hardware.
- Try to download the media ISO from another machine/network and retry booting up.
- Try to rewrite media.
