Windows Memory Diagnostic memdisk options not needed

#1 Post by Icecube » Mon Feb 02, 2009 7:07 am

Victor, is the ro bigraw parameter still needed for "Windows Memory Diagnostic"?

Code: Select all

MENU LABEL Windows Memory Diagnostic
TEXT HELP
 Tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. Released by
 Microsoft to cater to users who are experiencing problems when running
 Windows.
ENDTEXT
KERNEL /boot/isolinux/memdisk
APPEND initrd=/ubcd/images/windiag.igz ro bigraw
Without it, it seems to boot and run fine.

It doesn't run under VMWare without the "ro bigraw" params, so I suspect it will help on some physical machines.

It runs in VirtualBox and qemu, so I suspect that it will run fine on normal PCs.

Do you have the last version of VMware?

I am runnning V6.0.x, which is one generation behind the latest V6.5.x.

Anyone with VMWare V6.5.x can test this out?
