I’m trying to run the MemTest on my NC10 from a USB (no external CD drive). I keep getting a “Invalid System Disk” message at start up. I’m using a SanDisk U3 Titanium USB Drive if that matters.
Can anyone help me? Which version should I download?
Thanks for your help!
did you format the USB disk to be a system disk? You have to use special software for that, not just copy the file to the USB key and try to boot off of it.
And if you you’re using memtest86+ , 2.01 seems to work, but 2.10 was updated to officially support the Atom processor.
It’s quite an outdated build, I must admit, but I used this pre-made solution successfully:
Thank you Rob83! Had it working in minutes! MemTest is running now. Thanks again!
Er, another question: how do I replace it with a more updated MemTest?
I used syslinux:
I had to use my own commands though since not using it Linux. If you download the windows version, you can just do this:
1) format usb key as FAT (not sure if FAT32 works or not)
2) syslinux.exe -m -a -d /boot/syslinux z: [replace z: with the drive letter of usb key]
3) create /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg as a plain text file with the following text:
4) download the BIN version of memtest86+ and then rename it to just “memtest” and put it on the USB key in a directory called /boot/memtest/
5) reboot to the USB key and it should start right into memtest
You can only use MSDOS compatible names though (8.3 format).
