Nice, so i can use another computer to get the file, and just save it, then send the file to the USB stick, and it will understand to boot from that file.

No, you'll need to follow the second part of these instructions: Memory Diagnostics

Gigabyte 770ta-UD3, Corsair 1600 2G is not listed in the Memory Support list.

What BIOS Version is installed?

Wow, really, i didn't know that, so the Corsair is not a supported Memory stick. Yea, i don't know what BIOS i am using. How do you know the memory is not compatable, is there a website? How do i update the BIOS if i can't even get into an operating system
