Benchmarking outside of windows

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We all know benchmarking is relative to the software and hardware. Does anyone remember how memtest ran from a bootup disc, are there any benchmarking programs that are able to be run the same way, without going into windows and possibly currupting it when you get an error?

You can always install another copy of whatever Windows flavor you are running. Just use the install disk you originally used.
I install to a different drive though.

I always do this just so I can boot up if Windows gets corrupted.

And, yes, it will authenticate.
