• How can I add the memtest86+ options back to the Grub menu?


    Hi fellow Antergos users, memtest option is not showing in the grub menu, I have found some posts on how to fix, but the instructions are for other distribution, not antergos/arch, so kindly asking for help, I don’t want to risk borking my install following advice for other distros, TIA.

  • Check that you have the file /etc/grub.d/60_memtest86+ and that is executable, then regenerate grub’s boot menu:

    sudo su
    chmod +x /etc/grub.d/60_memtest86+
    grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    exit
    

    Cheers!

  • Hi Karasu, thank you for your help, I did follow your advice and it worked, but something a little strange happened, when I entered the commands using “sudo” they didn’t work, but when I entered them using “su” they worked, the entry for memtest now shows up in grub menu, what do you think about that?

    P.S. How can I mark the topic as solved besides writing it next to the subject?

    What I usually do, to not having to enter sudo all the time is sudo su and then you become root and can enter all commands. Then just exit to go back to your user.

    Sometimes sudo messes up when you run commands with parameters.

    Cheers!
