Hassan,


Memory only comes into play when the image is decompressed, as the router copies the image from the flash to DRAM during boot process. As Paolo stated try another image that fits within your available memory or upgrade the memory to run this image.

The router doesn'tt have enough memory for the image you're trying to load. You will need a memory upgrade, or load an older/smaller image.


Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
