You have to make the usb bootible. there is a tutorial on it in the tutorial section.then just copy the ISO to mark the usb bootible in bios, and 12 mins later your done

Yes, but I don't know how to do that (the memtest is usually a linux distro, but I'm unsure of what your hard drive is and what kind of bootable OS that the hard drive manufacturer uses.
