Configuring Vista, Server 2008 or Windows 7 to Perform Complete Memory Dump

You have probably noticed that windows vista, server 2008 or windows 7 does not have the option to configure a full memory dump in the Startup and Recovery interface.

So how do you get it to perform the full memory dump?

Well you now need to do this by a registry key. Navigate in the registry to:

Change the value on CrashDumpEnabled to "1".

CrashDumpEnabled "2" = Kernal Memory Dump
CrashDumpEnabled "3" = Small Memory Dump

When you go back into Startup and Recovery it will now read as "Complete Memory Dump"
