Boot Managers / Boot from internal SD card reader?
« Last post by leyove8203 on April 11, 2020, 05:36:45 AM »
Hey, I'm wondering is it possible to boot from an SD card reader built into my laptop, it seems Plop can't recognise it even though it works when using a USB-to-SD adapter. I am aware PlopKexec supports internal SD however it appears it can't be put on MBR or BIOS?
Having another USB plugged in just to boot from SD reader would essentially defeat the purpose, is there any workaround for it? Thank you!
Plop Linux / Re: Copy2Ram broken on 4.3.5

Very important to know:
If you get the error "no space left on the device", and you boot from syslinux, keep in mind that the folder "/syslinux" is loaded to ram!
If there are too many things inside this folder, you get this error.

Perfect, it looks like it's that!  8)

LOL, i googled and duckduckgoed around the world, found a lot of "stupid things" like change config files and such things, but at the end it is so easy...  ;D
Thank you very much!

The log is filling my screen with "spam"  ::)
Boot Managers / Is there a batch equivalent to plpbt4win.exe??
« Last post by slycooper724 on February 04, 2020, 22:18:11 PM »
Hello, I am relatively new to Plop, but not new enough to already have a customized install script to install Plop with. The version of plpbt4win.exe that I was looking for a batch equivalent for was version PLPBT4WIN 0.2 20110916. I am only looking to use it as a reference as to what commands it is sending to bcdedit so I can directly replicate what it should do on my system (I run into a compatibility error every time due to the manner that I am trying to run it, and the fact that its being run within recovery mode)

Boot Managers / lost access to my partitions
« Last post by christaras on January 05, 2020, 08:58:53 AM »
Hello. Plop boot manager was working fine for about a week. I had installed plpbt.img on diskette.
I had deleted and reinstall many times.

Yesterday when I pressed 4 to delete and then 9 to reboot, plop could not locate my hard disk partitions! I took out the diskette and when I reboot I got the message about no operating system found... and fdisk was telling me there are no existing partitions...

Had to repartition, reformat, reinstall win98, win xp and all the programs...

Can you tell me what happened and what can I do next something something like this happens?
Win98 is the system partition containing the boot files. Can I write them on diskette and boot next time it happens? Are they hidden? I can only see boot.bak, dont see any ntldr file.
Boot Managers / Re: configure vmware workstation 15 to use plop boot software

Your virtual machine is configured to boot in UEFI mode. The Plop Boot Manager is not UEFI compatible.

Usually, you can boot from USB with UEFI without any problems. But the the OS on the USB drive must be UEFI compatible and you need the "EFI/boot" directory with the OS loader on the drive.
Boot Managers / configure vmware workstation 15 to use plop boot software
« Last post by xcsae33 on December 26, 2019, 06:15:31 AM »
I want to try a lot of tutorials as given here windows tutorials (tutorial index)
So I need to prepare a lot of live USB sticks or USB sticks in the formats in which tutorials mention. Most of these tutorials that I want to try are windows installation media creation, creating recovery disks creating custom partitions etc. I want to try them first on virtual machines then want to try the steps on real hardware.
I read a tutorial here  for usb booting in VMware.
Here is how my virtual machine settings look like.

I power on the firmware and see the boot options

configure boot options

add boot options

No USB  boot options

So the question is how do I configure vmware workstation 15 so that I can boot using USB sticks.
I tried using plop boot ISO also
I downloaded from this page
I downloaded package   
tried putting it as an ISO to boot

I selected the plpt iso (which is probably plop boot manager ISO)

how to configue vmware workstation 15 to boot a virtual machine from a bootable usb drive.
There was no effect of using plpt boot ISO. What next can I try?
I am using Vmware Workstation 15 Pro 15.1.0 build-13591040.
