Die Frage ist auch, ob es mit Windows Boot Manager BCD machbar ist?

Meinst du ob man beim Windows Boot Manager die anderen Windows Installationen angeben kann?
Ok, thx.

Ok, vielen Dank für die Antwort. Schade....

booting from the logical partitions with this configuration will not work with the Plop Boot Manager 5. It should work with PBM6.

Best regards

Boot Managers / ifplop.c32 does not work in syslinux running from a disk image
« Last post by ruuser on April 23, 2020, 14:49:32 PM »
Hi all! I plan to use usb-hdd on different PCs, including old ones. To run on the old PC, I want to use syslinux(with Plop), but not install it on a usb-hdd, and run it from the disk image. I do this:

  title  sysimage
map (hd0,0)/sysimage.ima (hd1)
map --hook
root (hd1)

sysimage.ima - image with syslinux installed & plpbt.bin.

Syslinux itself(versions 4.01-6.03) is running normally, but the driver check does not work - no detections at all...

label __plop_check__
  com32 ifplop.c32
  append _plop_detected -- _plop_not_detected

label _plop_not_detected
  linux /plpbt.bin

label _plop_detected
  com32 chain.c32
  append ntldr=/grldr

If syslinux installed on a real disk instead of to an image, the check works perfectly.
Question: is it possible to make the check work when syslinux running from an disk image, too? Thanks.

PS. Many thanks to the developer of Plop Boot Manager, this is a really cool thing!

PPS. ifplop.c32 work correctly only if i use memdisk with option "harddisk" for mapping sysimage.ima, but memdisk is not that i need...
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.
