Hi Elmar,
I have just tried PBM6, and it only locates
The Hard Drive and the CD-Rom...  Not the USB Stick..

DRIVE 1   <HD, BIOS>   >
DRIVE 2   <CD>, SATA>  >

Thats it...
Hope you help.

Thanks again

Cheers

Hi Elmar
Thanks for the quick response.
I have burnt a CD with plpbt.iso in the parent directory

I have put the Cloudready USB stick in the USB port.
When I boot up, and select USB from the Menu..

I get the following screen:=

LOADING EHC1 driver
SEARCHING ON HOSTS
HOST  1
PORT 1: DEVICE CONNECTED

and it hangs from there

I will also try PBM6

Thanks Again really appreciate your help.
Cheers

Hello,

you burned the wrong ISO to the CD. You burned the ISO from the install directory. But you have to use the plpbt.iso from the parent directory.

You can also try PBM6.

Best regards

Boot Managers / Cant find USB using PLPBT-5.0.15

Hi There.
Hope you can assist.
I have an older Toshiba Notebook L500D.
I am wanting to install Cloudready on the hard drive replacing Windows 7. This installation needs to be done from USB stick, due to the size of the media (8Gb).
The BIOS does not give an option to boot from the USB port. It only has options to boot from Hard drive, CD, Network.
I Installed PLPBT-5.0.15 to a CD and it boots fine, but again the USB option is not available, I can see the hot keys, I tried Alt U, but no luck. It only has options to install PLBT to the hard drive.
I dont have a floppy drive.

I am hoping someone can assist.
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply ruuser.  What I ended up doing is partitioning one drive into two.  I installed WInXP first on Drive D.  Then when I installed Win7 on drive C the boot manager listed both Windows 7 and XP.  When I installed windows 7 it found the older version of windows and setup the boot loader.  It was almost to easy.  When I had the two individual SCSI HDD's installed(using the Adaptec controller card) and I installed WinXP first then Windows 7, for some reason Windows 7 never found the older version of windows and therefor never set up the boot loader.  I even tried EasyBCD and it couldn't ever find the other windows install. When I would go to add it the program would throw some error and crash.  Maybe I'll give Bootice a try.  Where can I find it?  Thanks again.

Probably Plop is not required, you can add the WinXP startup item to the Win7 menu. You can do this using the program bootice.exe - select the BCD tab, then EasyMode, click Add, select "New Windows XP/2003 entry" and select disk D on the right side of the window, and finally click "Save current system". After reboot, the menu with WinXP should appear.

Boot Managers / Dual Boot Windows 7/XP PC Issues
« Last post by nkeller74 on May 19, 2020, 19:30:02 PM »
Hi All,

     I'm building a vintage PC to support some of my older lab equipment.  Seems dual booting windows is easier said then done.

Hardware details:

Motherboard: Asus A7V8X (latest and greatest in 2002)
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2800+
RAM: 3GB(Max)
Disk Drives: Adaptec SCSI controller card 29160N Ultra 160
                  IBM 18GB SCSI drive
                  Maxtor Atlas 36GB SCSI

Current config:

I installed WinXP on drive D.  Before installing Win7 WinXP reliably booted.  Then I installed Win7 on Drive C.  Win7 now boots and mounts Drive D(I can see the WinXP files).

Simply this, what's the path to get a boot loader on this PC?  I didn't try Plop yet.  Will it work with this application?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

-Nate

Nicht ganz. Ich habe mit EasyBCD entsprechende Einträge hinzugefügt. Also 1 Eintrag pro Partition. 
Das Problem ist, dass die Primär-Partitionen 1-3 und Logische Partition 4 einwandrei funzen. ABER!! Wenn ich versuche von Partitionen 5 bis 10 zu booten - wird einfach von der Partition 4 geladen.... Das macht echt fertig....
