Running Windows is actually a good test. During my experience with faulty memory, Memtest did not help, but Windows would routinely crash. This convinced me that a hardware component was at fault. I had another pair of DIMMs on hand so my first thought was to replacement memory -- and that in fact turned out to be the root cause....
I don't but I have a Windows boot drive... I can run Memtest or ideally something easier
So running Windows is a good idea. If Windows is stable for long periods of time (including idle periods), then there is a reduced chance that hardware is at fault.
