Hello all. I have finally been asked by a friend to work on a netbook without a CD-ROM. I keep getting the famous irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD and I suspect it is either her RAM or HD. Normally I run memtest or spinrite to determine what the problem is but I dont know how to get either of these programs to boot from a USB drive. I have the BIOS set to boot from the USB drive but nothing happens. Any tips or tutorials you can suggest to help me out? Thanks in advance! :pt1cable:

Ideally what I would like is something like a boot loader that would ask me which program I want to boot off of the drive. Similar to when you have multiple OSs and can boot from your choosing at start-up. I would like to create a boot-able Flash drive with Spinrite and Memtest for now. Adding any other down the road that I might need.
