How to integrate new memtest86+ version?

#1 Post by badbrainz » Tue Feb 26, 2008 12:59 am

Hi there!

I just saw that there is a new memtest 86+ version around (2.01) and I would like to integrate it into my ubcd. The problem is that the file on the ubcd (memtestp in the "boot" folder) is just 97k large. Everything that I downloaded from the memtest website is either an .exe-file or some kind of floppy image with a size of 1.4 MB.
Does anyone of you know how to integrate the new memtest version into the ubcd?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Victor Chew

Download the linux binary packages from the two web sites, memtest86-3.3.tar.gz and
Find the compiled binaries in those packages. In the Memtest86 package it's called precomp.bin and in the Memtest86+ package its called memtest86+-1.70.bin. Rename these files what ever you like but remove the bin extention. Then just execute them like a Windows boot sector.
