SOLVED!  :)
house cleaning
I launched Windoze and noted that there's a rate=100 setting in the pointer driver - a little research revealed that the psmouse driver takes a rate= option. I added options psmouse rate=100 to /etc/modprobe.d/options but the module did not get the option, I imagine that it is not being modprobed.  So I added
rmmod psmouse && modprobe psmouse
to /etc/rc.local
and...
TADA!  :D
I'm glad you solved this already. I feel your struggle with facing this issue since I experienced this last month. Good thing I have a friend that expert in handling this case.

I am very sorry, my error description is somehow wrong.
I found out the following facts: PLOP 5.0.14, when booted from the first USB stick, boots the second USB stick only correct THE FIRST TIME after installing the boot-loader via syslinux. Then, the second stick is booted, but something goes wrong in the middle, so when you boot PLOP from the first USB stick the second time, it freezes when trying to boot the second USB stick !

I also tried to boot PLOP from a bootdisk that was burned to an actual CDROM, but the same error remains when booting from CDROM - PLOP (5.0.14) freezes when trying to boot the USB stick.

So, after booting the second USB stick from PLOP using the first USB stick once, I definitely have to re-write the boot code to the first boot stick EACH TIME.

That's nasty.

Hello,
I fought long and hard to get Plop bootmanager 5.0.14 working again. I have a quite old computer, Intel Q6600, mobo is MSI-Neo3-FR. The motherboard frequently boots some WinPE-usb-sticks too slow (Sergej Strelec, Hirens Boot cd etc.), so booting them takes more than 11 minutes.
My old solution was that I first booted PLOP from the first usb-stick, then used PLOP to boot the second usb-stick with the WinPE-stuff on it. This worked for a while, but mysteriously, it stopped working recently.

So, yes I am booting stick1-> PLOP menu -> "USB-boot" -> boot from stick 2 -> ventoy boot menu -> Sergej Strelec ISO (will now boot FAST!)

Well, I found out why it stopped working. I converted my old sticks from FAT32 to NTFS with the command  "conv x: /fs:ntfs" , but when you boot a PLOP boot menu usb stick from NTFS, the PLOP boot manager _will_ show up, but when you tell him to boot from USB, PLOP will scan for all USB devices and then freeze in the middle. The starfield will stop, the keyboard will be unresponsive, you can't do anything anymore.

Can you make PLOP work with NTFS again ?

I have been through with this problem before but I solved it by using software to analyze its performance.

... Lemmings Worms Dune2 Warcraft MegaRace Try it :)

Offtopic: Megarace 2. I've seen the game in a computer magazine in the 90s. I think there was also a disc with the Tibet track. Outstanding graphics! I lost the magazine and forgot the name of the game. I was searching for this game more than 20 years. So funny :)
