So I have blocked some bad memory range from RAM memory. My Question is the next one, I have done it right?

Here you have the info:

C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit /set badmemorylist 0xFC 0xFD 0xFE 0xFF
The operation completed successfully.

C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit /enum

C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit /set badmemoryaccess no
The operation completed successfully.

And the memtest will be shown:

    -1 ram has locations not sectors. hard drives have sectors – barlop Jun 18 '18 at 2:35

    +1 I did not know BCDedit could map out bad RAM segments. I suppose there are limitations depending on word boundaries – Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 18 '18 at 3:05
  • I don't think there's any problem with the question except for the incorrect term usage. I didn't know that Windows can also block fault memory ranges like grub Running windows with faulty memory which can not be replaced – phuclv Jun 18 '18 at 3:40
  • +1 for this undocumented feature. You seem to have done it right,as far as the non-documentation goes. You will can know the answer just by using the computer. – harrymc Jun 18 '18 at 8:11
  • No, I didn't. Anyway, the FIX for this is it on my profile. – Ștefan Furtună Jun 18 '18 at 8:36
