Did you try PBM6?

Best regards

I just want to add, that, when i select the USB Controller 2.0 (OHCI + EHCI), and then boot through plopboot manager using my USB stick (which is a 3.0 USB as i said) on my 2.0 USB hub, my VM just crashes as shown on the following screenshot.

Boot Managers / Boot Error - No boot device found
« Last post by Xyloox on February 25, 2021, 17:12:57 PM »

I'm writting this topic today, knowing that it has already been treated a few times but i'm still stuck with this error.

I'm using VirtualBox to create a bootable usb device in order to run Tails which would allow me to activate the persistence of the OS.

For doing that, i need in a first time to install Tails OS on my USB stick (which is a SanDisk Ultra Luxe 3.0), and after that, i have to launch my tails VM through ploplinux bootmanager to create all the persistent files i need.

The problem is that once i've launched my VM with ploplinux, i then enter in "Plop Boot Manager 5", so i can select USB, which should run tails OS that is installer on my USB stick.

But, it just tells me these few lines :

Loading EHCI Driver
Searching on hosts
Driver removed
Loading UHCI driver
Searching on hosts
Driver removed
Loading OHCI driver
Searching on hosts
Driver removed
Boot error
No boot revice found, please retry it

I don't really understand why this error happens every time because i already had a tails bootable version on this exact same USB stick that i'm using today. I tried all kind of USB Controller, from USB1.1 (OHCI) to USB2.0 OHCI + EHCI and even USB3.0 xHCI. Depending on which USB Controller i choosed, i tried to connect the USB stick in both of my 2.0 et 3.0 USB plugs, but nothing that i tried is actually working.

Sometimes, while using 1.1 or 2.0 USB controller, the message that i wrovte above will slightly change, but at the end, i always have the same error.
Boot Managers / Re: ifplop.c32 does not work in syslinux running from a disk image

If someone is interested in this question -  the Xorboot is able to mount a disk image(as HDD image), when loading from which Syslinux correctly checks for the Plop-driver.
Boot Managers / Just a suggestion
« Last post by HeWhoLikesCheese on February 24, 2021, 12:57:01 PM »
Hi Elmar,

I just discovered this excellent piece of software which allows me to boot from my internal SD card reader. Great job on this one. I love how portable it is and how easy it is to boot it from other bootloaders.

My one suggestion would be to just put the source code on github, specifically PlopKexec. This would be great advertisement for the software (and the plop website) as currently it is a bit hard to find (I came across this by complete accident). Open source projects like this tend to be received well by the linux community. You will still have control over the project, but you'll also get a lot of good feedback with things like pull requests.

I would also suggest that you list "booting from SD cards" as a feature as this is very useful and pretty rare.

Boot Managers / Re: Zu doof für Plop Boot Manager ?

Hallo und Danke für dne Hinweis.
:) Hat sich erledigt. Einen anderen, alten Laptop konnte ich mit USB Stick auf Linux Mint umstellen. Eine Knoppix und eine Linux Mint 14 23-Bit version startete dann auf dem Rechner. Der ist jetzt auf Linux Mint 14 (will aber versuchen, ihn noch auf eine aktuellere Version zu bekommen ... mal sehen, ob die Hardware das noch schafft)

 Dank und Gruß

anstelle vom Plop Boot Manager 5 solltest du PlopKexec oder PBM6 probieren. In deinem Fall kannst du die beiden Bootmanager nur von CD starten. Dann kannst du ein System von CD oder USB booten.

Hallo zusammen,

ich habe hier einen alten 32-Bit Rechner
Pentium 4
Windows XP SP3
HD 200 GB
Memory 1,5 GB
etliche USB slots

Der startet von Festplatte einwandfrei und läuft auch (bis auf einige Blue-Screens :) ) eigentlich noch tadellos.
Eine (Windows) Installations-CD vom CD oder DVD Laufwerk startet auch problemlos

Ich will den Rechner auf Linux umstellen (am liebsten Linux Mint Cinnamon 32 bit Version).
Einig Linux-ISO Files schon ausprobiert (Bodhi /Linux Mint 17)

Starten nie - weder vom USB Stick noch von CD.  :(

Nun den Plop boot manager installiert.
Der bringt mir die Bott Auswahl (HD/CD/USB)
Aber bei CD (Bodhi Live) bekomme ich die Meldung "CD not bootable"
Bei USB (1.1) hängt er sich beim Boot load auf.

Damit geht nur HD ... und das ging ja schon immer :( 

Irgendwelche Tips, was ich noch versuchen könnte ??

   Dank und Gruß

Booting from NFS3 server is fixed.

Fix: I added the missing files netconfig, protocols and services to the initrd etc.

Please try the 21.1 test version.

HFS+ Rescue / Re: Struggling to figure out where restored files should show up.
« Last post by Elmar on February 04, 2021, 19:27:22 PM »
It seems that important parts of the old file system are missing and the old structure can't be restored by hfsprescue.

The "x_directory_problem" directory should have valid files. hfsprescue is not able to do more in that case.
