Hi, after a few try I get memtest86+ running. It actually had done 11 pass
with 0 error but I am wondering if it doing a series of test or always the
same test until I stop it. I also find that when I pushed the escape key too
early I was directed on this message: please select boot devices; 1- floppy
drive; 2-PM_WDC WD5000AAJB-00UHA0; 3-SM-HP DVD writer 400; 4-SS-ASUS
CD-5480/AH but if I use F1 and go in the boot menu the order is different.
Is it important?
Thank you for your answer
