memtest NBP on UEFI?
hi, as i understand, actually is patched memtest NBP usable only with BIOS/Legacy, is any way to run on UEFI, if not now, then in (nearby?) future?

RE: memtest NBP on UEFI?
An PCBIOS program can not run in EFI
And an EFI program can not run in PCBIOS.
I think this is in the FAQ as well

It is unlikely (read impossible) that current memtest NBP code would get EFI interfaces added.
There are (paid) memtest programs that can run in EFI and allows to be network booted.
Not sure how the feedback are tho in terms of returning to iPXE on success/failure

Read FAQ before first post!
Are relevant ipxe.org error urls and PCIIDs included?

RE: memtest NBP on UEFI?
Thanks for answer, i assumed that, but I wanted to make sure :-)

Yes, i try memtest86 v8.2 (free), first chain BOOTX64.efi from memtest86-usb.img, this boot but show "PXE Boot is not supported", next i try sanboot whole memtest86-usb.img and this start memtest... but with 4pass and ofcourse without success/failure feedback... official supported PXE Site version with report possibility is too expensive for my use...
