I think, you can try different bootloaders - plop6, grub4dos, syslinux, grub2, xorboot... - maybe one of them will see the USB port of the daughter board, and you will get USB3 speed. But you can only run BIOS distro(not UEFI). IMHO

Thanks.
Yes, it´s an old PC.
Any ideas please?

if the computer has an old BIOS, it is unlikely to work in uefi mode...

Boot Managers / User Case: booting UEFI Distro (USB3 Pendrive) from USB2 Pendrive.
« Last post by Vadim on July 23, 2020, 23:04:53 PM »
Hello.

I have an old PC that has only booting in BIOS via USB2. But I have already installed PCIexpress daughter card on the motherboard that has 4 USB3 ports. It's not booting from there.
The idea is to put PLOP BOOT Manager on an old USB2 Stick and chainload the other UEFI Distro from there via USB3 Pen Drive.

How can I do that?

Thanks, Vadim.

check your PC for sse2 support - if there is no such support, you will not be able to install os newer than win7... even win7 with updates in 2018 and later will not work, only earlier versions of win7 will work

I'll maybe try to upgrade it to Win7 first then on to 10. Shouldn't matter though I wouldn't think, I'm nearly sure I've seen a guy put Win10 on a Win98 PC.

maybe it's a win10 problem - it can't work on your old PC

Boot Managers / Plop boot manager won't load files on my USB
« Last post by LeeLowry on June 24, 2020, 12:33:24 PM »
Hi there,

I'm using an old IBM PC (Windows XP), so I installed Plop boot manager to access the USB to boot Windows 10. I have just used the USB to boot up another old laptop of mine using Windows 7, without needing to go through Plop boot Manager - so I know the USB is bootable and working.

Whenever I click on USB in Plop boot manager, it just comes up loading files, then the PC restarts all over again, any ideas? I've also tried the force USB 1.1 in boot manager setup but it says error using Mode 1 & Mode 2.

Is there something I am missing?

Thanks,
Lee
