This is a Problem I saw a lot starting maybe with the Intel i-Series. 
Sometimes it helped to use the Failsafe mode, but on a 3rd-gen i3 not 
even that worked. But it is also good to see that this was eventually 
fixed in the newer versions of memtest86+.

Aha I see! Yes, I was testing with a good ol' BIOS.
Looking forward to the next GRML release then ;)
