It's possible to run the Built in Memory Diagnostic from the menu of bootmgr on Win 7.

Would it be possible to include this in a PE ( as a option from a boot menu, similar to Win7 )?

Since I always have a PE on my UFD, this would be convenient. I know I can run memtest+ or similar. Just asking.

I have a ISO with just these files in folder 'boot' and it permits me to run the mem diag:

Just increase the countdown timer in bcd and you get option for the mem diagnostic (use TAB). I used EasyBCD to set a 3 sec countdown.

When you see the screen that says "Press any key to boot from USB. . ." press the enter key twice, this will open the windows boot manager... from there you can run the built in memory diagnostic by pressing the 'tab' key to highlight the Memory Diagnostic tool then press enter...
