[reboot fail] couldn't find suitable memory target



after successfully compiling and installing the kernel sources on the latest Ubuntu desktop version on real hardware, i have the error on boot "couldn't find a suitable memory target".
I followed the steps in the course to create the initial ".config" copying from "/boot/config-*-generic" and "yes" to all the questions about the new kernel configurations proposed before starting the build.

Doing a search it seems that the error is due to an excessive size of initrd.img- * lastest-kernel-ver * and that unnecessary modules should not be included.
It's correct?
I did not find any reference to this part in the course material.

What is the best way to solve this problem?

    There is no need to say "yes" to all new kernel config options. Pick safe defaults by pressing enter - build and see if that helps. Also make sure to run "make clean" prior to building
