Re: [opensuse-support] TW Grub EFI menu & memtest86+

My understanding, which could be wrong, is that "memtest" needs to be
compiled to an efi binary, and made available as memtest86.efi (or other
suitable name).

Maybe a bug report (enhancement request) is appropriate.

http://forum.canardpc.com/threads/68001-NEW-%21%21-Memtest86-5-00-RC1-available-%21-Need-betatesters-%21?s=5cbbb17b2f615e5c7183d5ff78ab47fd&p=5467296&viewfull=1#post5467296

I guess that explains why not memtest86+, but not why not memtest86 7.4, which
according to https://www.memtest86.com/technical.htm can be loaded by lilo or
grub. If that site has an example menuentry for Grub2, I'm missing it. I tried
creating one using the efiboot.img from a burned 7.4 iso, but get error message:

error: can't allocate kernel

from this menuentry:

menuentry "Memory test (memtest86 7.4)" {
insmod part_msdos
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,gpt1
--hint-efi=hd0,gpt1 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,gpt1 F6A8-27B2
linuxefi /MT74EFI.IMG
}

(whether .img is lower case or upper case in menuentry) chainloader instead of
linuxefi produces a very long /EndEntire...cannot load image result.
