Cortex M0 Vector relocation issue

Hi,

I'm trying to implement IAP on an stm32f051 device, but get a linker error when specifing VectorTable address is 0x20000000.

__IO uint32_t VectorTable[48] __attribute__((at(0x20000000)));

STM32F0-Discovery_Demo.axf: Error: L6985E: Unable to automatically place AT section main.o(.ARM.__AT_0x20000000) with required base address 0x20000000. Please manually place in the scatter file using the --no_autoat option. 

The program compiles and links when I don't mention a particular address
__IO uint32_t VectorTable[48];
 
Program Size: Code=46848 RO-data=2976 RW-data=1312 ZI-data=6712 
and I can see it in the map file..

VectorTable          0x200011e4   Data

I know I don't have a lot of RAM so is this the issue? If I could get a workaround without using the scatter file (never used it before), that would be good as well. Hopefully someone can give me a few pointers.

Regards
Bob
