    Help with booting USB to check G703GX RAM

    Hello everyone. I was hoping to get a little help.

    I have a ROG G703GX and I want to use memtest86+ to test the RAM. I downloaded memtest86+, threw it on a USB stick and popped it in my laptop and rebooted into the BIOS to change the boot device. Much different than I expected as I was expecting the simple blue BIOS I have on my G75VW. However for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the USB to show up as a bootable device and I didn't want to go playing around in a BIOS I have never seen. I was hoping someone here could help me/point me in the right direction.

    Thank you.

    A USB stick must be specially formatted to be bootable. There are guides online as to how to do this.

    But these days I just run HCI Memtest in Windows. Much easier.
