Memtest

Post#1 by Noxus1067 » 10 Oct 2012, 19:05

As i see, there was a question about memtest already, and you make a decision to delete them from boot menu. And now i want to ask you about restoring this option. I have a memtest86+ and i don`t know what to do with that .iso or .bin file. I already do it with Grub and now i trying to combine default porteus syslinux and memtest in one .cfg file.

Code: Select all

LABEL Memtest86+ 4.20
KERNEL mt86plus
And its gone™
I mean it does not working. Then

Code: Select all

LABEL Memtest86+ 4.20
KERNEL boot/memtest.bin (or .iso)
What should i do now? :wall:

Probably easiest would be to use from_iso cheatcode if you have an ISO.

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

@Noxus1067
please download Porteus-1.1 and copy /boot/tools/mt86p from it to Porteus-1.2 then add following porteus.cfg entry:

Code: Select all

LABEL memtest86
MENU LABEL Run Memtest utility
KERNEL /boot/tools/mt86p
TEXT HELP
    Don't start Porteus at all, but
    rather run the MemTest utility
    to diagnose your computer's RAM
    for possible errors
ENDTEXT
