Would anyone in this thread care to try out 6.02-pre6? It contains a
bunch of changes that should hopefully get us on the path to fixing this

If you're feeling adventurous, you could even try,

 debug.c32 -e pxelinux_scan_memory

(either from the boot: prompt or via a config option) before invoking
memtest to see whether the PXE code is marking the memory regions as
available for use.
