you dont install Memtest you burn it to a disc and boot of the disc. Grab the ISO file when you download it.
It runs independent of a OS.
Boot off it and let it run overnight.
I personally use Ultimate Boot CD for Windows Version 3.03
Released: 1/4/07
it doesnt have the new ver. of Memtest (1.70) but it has all of the Boot Programs I use.
