in D partition. EWF
Overlay Type is RAM REG(),i don't know if need enable pagefile support?
or how i think about the problem?

Typically, you don't want a pagefile if EWF is enabled, especially in RAM or
RAM REG configuration. Since you have a read/write partition, you can enable
the page file and have it reside on the read/write drive with a registry key

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session
Manager\Memory Management
Value Name: PagingFiles
Value: <path\pagefile.sys minsize maxsize> i.e. d:\pagefile.sys 150 500

You will loose some debug capability.

Sean Liming: thank you very much!

I want to know whether pagefile.sys may be destroyed when the XPE is
shutdown illegally(ex: an electric power cut immediately)?

I know the OS may not be started up again when the pagefile.sys was
destroyed. we need one reliable OS(XPE)

I understand it correctly?

thanks again:)
