I want to run a Memtest86 test on my new laptop; but it doesn't have a floppy drive. Thus I want to make a bootable CD instead. I have downloaded the ISO image from the memtest site and it just says use your CD writer software to create a CD from the ISO image. BUT how do you do this?? I've just remembered I tried to do something like this before, but when I copied the .iso file to the CD it didn't work, it is just a file that is an ISO image, not the image itself, if you see what I mean.
I cannot see anything anywhere to explain how to make an ISO image on a CD, all there is, is drag and drop etc. I have the Windows XP CD writer and Sonic digital media LE.
Run Easy CD Creator and click on the FILE menu, LH side at top. Note if there is a "record CD from CD image" on drop down menu. You then need to select the iso file, open it, place a blank CDR in your drive and then select burn.
Thanks for the info...I think I may have a copy of Nero...somewhere! Is CD Creator the Windows one? The Windows one just starts up when I put a CD in. This sounds daft, but I haven't used CD writer software properly for ages (appart from when I tried and failed to make the other ISO file CD on my main computer a few months ago. I now use USB pens all the time.)
But, to come back to my test of the pudding...it did not work! The computer failed to boot to memetest (yes I have sorted the boot order etc).
I don't know whether I made the CD properly, or memtest doesn't work...oh dear. Has anyone made a bootable CD for memtest? I have the floppy version which does work (but can't use because of the lack of floppy drive on the laptop).
