error in JAVA WAS upgrade from SP09 to SP16

I'm trying to upgrade to SP16 support package stack for XI. My underlying database is MSSQL ver 8 oner windows 2003 server edition.

I'm having a problem installing Java WebAs patches using SAPINST.exe. There were 23 steps to be executed but the installation got stuck at step 17(deploy online). I have left the installation for 12 hours but nothing happended, not even an error message was displayed.

Before the installation started, in the prerequisite checker step it give a message saying that the swap space condition was not met and that 10240 mb swap space is recommended. It anaways gave me an option to ignore the message and continue with installation.

My guess is that step 17 did not work due to less swap space.

If anybody can help me to increase the swap space i would really appreciate that.
