Mztic, that's a new one on me. I've booted from almost everything possible, but I've never known an exe file to be bootable. I think you found that out. So, I won't be much help there. Sorry I can't help.

I did it once in a computer science class before, don't remember what it was though, it's been 5 years.
Also, it's what the instructions tell me to do, so I'm clueless.

Edit: Just got kicked from Arma 2, with corrupted memory error.
First time I have that so it's either a big coincidence or it pushes it to the RAM area for the most likely cause of the BSODs.

Edit 2: Too tired so I'm going to bed for at least 8 hours, I'll let Memtest run all the time.
If it keeps going like this I think it's going to give errors.

Well, somehow last time I did the memtest it did a full pass without errors, this time it threw errors all around (5000+) within 10 minutes, 3 times straight.

I suspected the cheaper brand of RAM being the culprit (which unfortunately is half of my RAM), and I'm pretty sure was right, I started memtest, waited 15 minutes without errors.
I went to bed, woke up with 19 passes, no errors.
So it seems like the new cheaper brand stick died in half a year.
From 8 GB of RAM to 4 GB, I'm going to see if it bothers me too much or if I don't notice it before I re-order (a better brand now) another stick of RAM.

Thanks for the help and the suggestions, I'm going to wait about a week before I mark this as solved if it's fine for you guys, in the meantime I already +repped you guys for the help and time so far.

You're very welcome and I hope it solves your problem. My suggestion would be to buy all new ram in a kit. Kits are made and tested by the major manufacturers to run together. Sometimes ram even from the same manufacturer and same specs can have the problem you are having now. They just don't play nice together. I would hate to see you in the same position you are in now.

Thanks for the hint, I'll keep that in mind.

Seemingly Random BSOD
Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...

BSOD, seemingly random
Hey guys, been having some issues with my machine as of late. I'll have times when I can use it for hours, leave it and come back to find it has restarted after a BSOD. At first the errors seem to be memory related, but all 3 sticks pass memtest without issue. I'm at a loss as to what could be the...
