Memtest86+ is a thorough stand-alone memory test for x86 and x86-64
architecture computers. BIOS based memory tests are only a quick
check and often miss many of the failures that are detected by
The ELF version should be used for booting from grub,
and avoids the following errors:
"Error 7: Loading below 1MB is not supported"
"Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format"
"Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory"
The script '/usr/sbin/memtest-setup' can be run (as root)
to add the memtest86+ entry to your GRUB boot menu.
