Argh, ok now memtest won't work with old ram either
 
I recently RMA'd my crucial pc2-8500 ram in part due to it failing to load up memtest...

Now I have swapped back to the original OCZ 6400 ram, reset back to previous settings and memtest wont load up in it either, no amount of web searching got anything useful, please help...

It says this much "loading..............."

then locks up so it looks like this:

loading................
_

with the cursor flashing, only a hard reset works after that...

all bios settings are at "auto", wtf?

OK, so after some testing, it is the AHCI sata setting that does it, enabled=memtest locks up, disabled=runs fine...


Why and any workarounds that allow me to leave AHCI enabled? Windows will bite the big one potentially if I switch it on and off...
