After the install process which was successful i reboot only to find that error 28 selected item cannot fit into memory windows xp grub tells me error 28 (0k lower / 0k upper). I have used this version of centos in the past on other systems (with no problem) that were not as new as the
Error 28 Selected Item Cannot Fit Into Memory Red Hatone i am currently trying to use. My current setup is core 2 duo with 4g ram lsi raid 10 3.6tb. I have never had to change anything involving the bootloader before so i am not sure where to start to even look to find what the issue is. I would guess that it is trying to tell me that there is not enuff memory to start the error 28 selected item cannot fit in memory kernel but how do i fix this.... -Thanxrob Top YBellefeuille Posts: 312 Joined: 2012/03/06 22:30:17 Location: Ottawa Re: Centos 6 new install Grub error 28 Quote Postby YBellefeuille » 2012/09/08 20:01:38 Grub error 28:Code: Select all28 : Selected item cannot fit into memory
This error is returned if a kernel, module, or raw file load
command is either trying to load its data such that it won't fit
into memory or it is simply too big.

However instead of booting, the PC just said: "Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory". Fortunately this is covered by [http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=319837 this Debian bug]. It's still not been fixed, in the meantime you can grab this [http://www.smop.co.uk/files/memtest precompiled] memtest86+ ELF binary (not the usual x86 boot sector). You need to boot it slightly differently, my grub entry is: title Memtest (ELF - 4GB fix) root (hd0,0) kernel -type=netbsd /memtest boot Posted: January 4th, 2009 under Linux.
