F8 at startup to boot to CD :whistling:

What is the make and model of your computer.

Did you Burn the ISO file to cd using the ISO burning method with your cd burner.

If you do not have a CD burner that can burn ISO you can use Deep Burner

If you used the CD version of boot and nuke then the drive is fine, as is the boot order. It is essential that the CD version of the file for memtest is burned as an ISO image

There ia a floppy version of memtest which you could try, check the boot order is 1st Floppy if you do
