USB flash drive doesn't boot for me.
I changed the BIOS to start first 'remove' drive but windows start normally.
any idea what's wrong?

Try using the popup boot menu. It is accessed by pressing a key, often F12, during the BIOS POST screen. Also, this menu may be disabled by default, so if you don't see the option, try enabling it in the BIOS.

Did you allow the Memtest USB installer to format your drive first? If not, try doing so.

Hello, and welcome!

I loaded up Memtest86 on a virtual machine (VirtualBox), and then took a screenshot with my host OS, using the built-in Snipping Tool.

The only method I am aware of to take a screenshot of a DOS tool, that does not provide its own utility, is to take a picture with a camera.

Hi again Jonathan, and thank you for the help!
I made a test and it works fine, but the issue is that, as thought, i can't allocate the real memory size to the virtual machine. I have 4GB ram (for example) and i just can allocate 1500 MB.
I wanted this working for testing the HDD's and RAM's of notebooks in an Acer TPM Repair Center and save a proof that they are OK. For HDD's I have a licensed HDD Regenerator usb boot disk for DOS and taking screen captures with Screen Thief running at the same time and hiting a hot key (Alt+Ctrl+T) for the shots. I tried to do the same with Memtest86+, run ST then Memtest but it doesn't work and i don't know why.. maybe because the memory management, well don't really know..
If you remember or find anything just tell me if you don't mind!

Best regards and thank you again,
Chester

I wouldn't know how to do that, I'm sorry. I seriously doubt there is a way to test the physical memory from a virtual machine, honestly. It's all run from a process and a virtual hard drive file.

Your best bet is to take a snapshot of your screen using a camera.

just throwing my 2 cents in, i got same problem what i did was under boot select hard disk drives and using the (+) move usb to 1st. This should make it boot from your usb drive. your 'remove' drive is if i'm not mistaken your floppy drive. i could be wrong.
