Windows 7: memtest86+ from a usb?

memtest86+ from a usb?

Ive tried a few tuts and nothing has worked for me. My mini can boot usb hdd already. if i have it formatted as fat/32 it says please remove all removable media. If I format it as ntfs it looks for bootmgr. How can I run memtest86+ with my usb drive? I need to check my ram and I have heard windows memory diagnostic doesnt always find whats wrong. I heard one person found nothing with windows but memtest86 found over 5k errors.

Please and thankyou.

I followed this tutorial:
How to format a USB memory key

Worked fairly well for me.

To run MemTest just place "mt400.exe" (or whatever version you're using) in the root of the key after following the above tutorial, then type "mt400.exe" once you're at the command prompt.
