This can easily be put on a USB and removed when no longer needed.

This led to making a USB rescue drive, which quickly led to approximately 400 apps on 1.44GB.
Including the Windows 7 System Repair Disc and MS Sysinternals Suite.
Most of these will never get used but, it's better to have something when needed than have to look for it.
Hi Dave

Im interested in what you have done here.I have about 7-8 1 gig usb sticks with various boot programs on like partition wizard, killdisk, now memtest but its always bothered me that especially in the memest case that it uses only 200kb of space on a 1 gig flash drive.
How do you install more than 1 boot program on 1 flash drive and how does the pc recognise which program you want to use at boot.
I would be very interested in making something along the lines of what you have done.

Hi Danny,
I am using this:
How to Create the Ultimate Bootable USB Flash Drive
You can add as many ISO programs as you have room for, then edit the loader file to add it to the start list. Works great.

The other one is Liberkey, has a lot of useful apps that come with it, as far as I remember you can't add apps to it, but you can use the free space to store any files you want. I just made a folder for the misc files.

Make sure you have your BIOS set to boot from a USB device, there are usually a couple of choices, try them until you find the right one.
Thanks for posting back Dave. Looks like ive got a nice little project on for an easter sunday now.Will have a look at the links you supplied and give it a go.

Thanks again

Danny

Your welcome, it's actually pretty easy.

Have to search for the appropriate programs in ISO format.

Glad it worked for you, it makes a very nice USB flash drive multi tool device.

And Memtest86+ works on it also.

After running the memtest is there a way to pull up past tests, or do you have to see the screen as it finishes? I just ran it for 5 hours, and had a power failure in the building before I could get back to it. Not sure if it logs the data somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

Thanks,

Hello carisch,

Unfortunately, there are no logs generated by Memtest86. The only report given is the one displayed on the screen. I'm afraid you'll have to run the test over again.

Hi,

I recently began getting BSOD for no apparent reason. I did a total system reset, wiping and formatting all hard drives and even did a CMOS jumper reset and took battery out to reset CMOS. Also, I installed the latest Asus BIOS, which is 0801 for my board.

The BSOD I got initially had the "Page Fault in Nonpaged Area" error. But then when I tried to reinstall Windows it gave me the c000021a BSOD, putting me in a loop to the recovery module, but then failing to be able to anything and restarting, and round and round I went.

Read up and saw it could be RAM issues. I've downloaded the latest Memtest86+, being 4.20 I think. I burnt the iso and loaded up the PC, and as it should it ran straight into Memtest. With all 4 RAM sticks in, it threw up errors immediately. It brought up a total of about 700 errors after 3 trials of 10 passes, all errors in the 3200-3300MB range.

I then followed this tutorial and took all sticks out. I put a single stick back in Bay 1 and ran 10 passes with no errors. Proceeded to this with the other 3 sticks, all using Bay 1. They all returned with no errors at all. This led me to think it must one of the RAM bays that's damaged then.

So I then proceeded to use one of the RAM sticks (as all seem to work fine from previous test) in Bay 2, 3 and 4, running 10 passes on each Bay. All Bays passed with no errors.

I'm now confused as it seems all sticks are error-free and all Bays are error-free. However, when I stick all 4 RAM sticks in again, I get the errors coming up again.

Any ideas???
