Program too big to fit in memory (while installing)
Hi. Recently I got a Toshiba NB305 from an Uncle of mine, and it came with Windows 7 starter. I decided to upgrade it to Ultimate, seeing as I have the CD. I copied the contents of the CD to a flash and transferred it to the Toshiba. When I opened the setup.exe, a small window popped out and gave a prompt for a split second. I had to take a screenshot to get what the prompt was. It was 'Program too big to fit in memory'. I've tried stopping some processes that weren't necessary in order to free up computer memory usage but it didn't work.
I really want to get this OS up to Ultimate, any help please? Thanks in advance

Have you tried installing Windows 7 Ultimate with the CD and not from a flash drive?

huggie54's right. There's no drive.. that's why I decided to go with a flash. Any other ideas you can share?

How much RAM is on this netbook and how big is the diskdrive?

A lot of these "Starter" machines can not handle the bigger versions of Windows 7.

@huggie54 I tried the link.. but each time I got to the part of formatting my flash I kept getting the error 'DiskPart has encountered an error: The parameter is incorrect. See the System Event Log for more information'. Unfortunately I don't know how to access the system event log.
@DaveA it's got a 1GB RAM and a 223GB HDD

To be honest with you, I think you will be disappointed in running ultimate on a netbook with only 1Gb ram and a 1.6Ghz processor. It will run faster than starter, but not that much faster, and there will be features in Ultimate that you will not be able to use. I run Home Premium on a netbook (different manufacturer but same specs) and it runs very well though still not a speed demon.

The system doesn't have a CD drive, except I would kinda have to buy an external CD drive

I understand that using Ultimate on a netbook won't be to it's maximum capacity, but there are tweaks I could make to increase the efficiency

Then get better hardware that is designed for the bigger Windows 7 product.

If you are getting the (The parameter is incorrect) you are inputting the command incorrectly. Sometimes it is easier to follow a video tutorial. Go to TR Dojo: Install Windows 7 from a USB flash drive and follow the video.

That one actually worked.. then when I got to copying the contents of the CD unto the flash, some .dll files wouldn't copy. Kept getting the error that they were either not found or corrupted. Thanks for the link nevertheless... I'm not sure this problem is :/
