Stata is telling you exactly what is wrong
with your command. 

If you are using Intercooled Stata, that is 
the end of the road for that command, as you 
cannot increase -matsize- above 800. 

If you are using Stata/SE or Stata/MP, you 
can, and must, increase -matsize-. 

In any case, I am not clear that you are doing what 
Maarten recommended. I understand that he recommended
-xtreg, fe-, and that you not use -xi:-.
