Hardware Reserved Memory Test

This test checks the amount of memory that is reserved by the hardware (including drivers or firmware), and that is not available to Windows® or user applications. Reducing hardware reserved memory provides an improved user experience and better overall system responsiveness due to greater availability of memory for user applications.
