Attempt to load memtest with linux16 resets system just as well. I do not see how you can possibly use linux16 on EFI system with anything, and if it works it is just by luck.

There is version of memtest for EFI.

It is so useful for memtest and other users of linux16 protocol that aren't Linux.

Why is it then built on EFI platform? I turn it into build system bug.

Linux16 is not compatible with Linux on EFI

If linux16 and initrd16 are used in a GRUB menu during a UEFI boot, the system will reboot when it has finished loading the kernel and initrd.
