memtest86's no show

 Probably one of you have managed to run memtest86 on a 64-bit Intel
box (hp-xw6600)
 I downloaded and burned memtest86 Version 4.0b (Server) (26-Oct-2011)
onto a CD, but when I boot up the box from the CD all I see is:
   Memtest86 Version 4.0b Server

   Select Version:

   1) Boot V4.0b Server (Default)

   2) Boot V4.0a

   3) Boot V3.5b

boot: 1
Loading memtest.....ready.
 I don't see any progress screen or anything. Running "cat
/proc/cpuinfo | grep flag"
 flags: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov
pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe lm
constant_tsc pebs bts pni dtes64 monitor ds_cpl cid cx16 xtpr lahf_lm
 so it handles Long Mode (lm) (64-bit) and the installed memory:
"dmidecode --type memory" show to me 2 DMI types. Two of which look
# dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.5 present.

 The version of memtest with knoppix apparently is the 32 bit one
(same with Ubuntu, which does not seem to have a 64-bit version for
AMD software)
 why is memtest not working? How can I make it run on my box?
