Boot Managers / Re: Won't boot from USB loaded...
Last post by humdrumcoll - Today at 06:53:08 AM
It seems like the recent Windows 11 update might have caused a boot issue with your Lenovo ThinkCentre. Start by resetting your BIOS/UEFI settings to default and ensure the USB boot device is prioritized in the boot order. Try creating a new bootable USB with a different tool like Rufus. If possible, boot into Safe Mode by repeatedly powering on and off to trigger Windows Recovery Environment. Also, double-check all hardware connections and use Windows recovery media for a startup repair if you have it. If these steps don't resolve the issue, consider contacting Lenovo support for further assistance.

It sounds like your system might be having trouble with booting due to partition or boot order issues. The blinking cursor or "boot disk not found" error suggests that your computer isn't finding the correct bootable partition or device. To resolve this, first, check your BIOS or UEFI settings to ensure the correct drive and partition are set as the primary boot device. For the issue with configuring profiles and booting, ensure that the partition with Windows XP is properly marked as active if you want it to boot. As for Windows 98 on the primary partition, it might be overshadowed by your boot configuration settings. Verify that the boot sequence and partition settings are correctly configured for each operating system. If needed, you might want to use a bootable utility disk to fix or restore the boot configuration.

The version of PBM you're using (plpbt-5.0.15.zip) may not be fully compatible with your system.

There are no apparent problems with the BIOS or the SSD being used. When I deploy the plpbt.bin file in the floppy drive A:, it displays the green lettering of plop, which allows me to select the USB option. When I choose the USB option, it detects the USB stick from which I have successfully booted live i386/w32 "cdroms" of Debian LXQt and MX Linux.

Quote from: gooza1 on January 05, 2024, 13:33:06 PMSo I have a lenovo mini thinkcentre running windows 11. yesterday the OS updated and now all i get is a black screen and it will not boot. All connections are good and the monitor is working as it flashes HDMI and monitor controls but no logo and I tried everything to get it to boot and nothing works. Using another computer i created a boot disk on a USB and then I downloaded Plop onto the USB and tried to boot my PC. It doesn't work. All i have is the same black screen/ What am I doing wrong? How can i get it to boot again? fnaf

If you can't get into Safe Mode, try booting from the Windows Recovery Environment. You can create a Windows 11 recovery drive on a USB flash drive and boot from it to access recovery tools.

I agree with you. Everything works quite well but there are often errors, I don't know if it's due to my browser or it

Boot Managers / Idea: write executables in the...
Last post by brittnib0 - June 26, 2024, 10:26:43 AM
Hi,

Since the floppy disk image has a fixed size, I suggest you add these files to the floppy disk image as there is enough space:

- /dos/pbm6-dos
- /linux/pbm6
- /windows/pbm6nt

Therefore, you can mount the same floppy from any OS and chainload to PLOP without writing the file to another storage.

In addition, you can rename the Linux binary and put all the files in the root directory of the floopy (pbm6-dos, pbm6-linux, pbm6nt, plus the current PBM6 file).

You like the idea?
