    Can anyone give me direct links (if possible) to create a boot CD for windows XP with Memtest 86 on please? I've tried loads, but all my attempts have failed.

    Thanks!

    Can I just stick this on a CD or do I have to do anything else?

    Previous attempts have failed because I can't make a boot disk. :(

    Thanks for the file stigggeh!

    I have just checked the one above. It opens Roxio for me, if I double click it it lets me burn a boot disc. Set your boot priority to cd/dvd drive and it should start at boot up. Hope this helps :)

    Yup - extract the .iso image and burn the IMAGE (not the file itself) to the disc - so many people fall down on that - using something like Nero, Alcohol, Roxio etc.

    Wow you guys stay up late. Thanks though.

    When I did it, it said that there were files attatched that may/will (don't remember which) be lost. I'm off to try it anyway.

    EDIT: Just tried it and when I try to boot from the CD it just ignores it. Any ideas?
