Boot Managers / USB boot option not working
« Last post by andfree on April 12, 2018, 09:50:28 AM »
Hi. I'm running PLOP from CD on an old Desktop. When I choose the "USB" boot option, there's only a  "LOADING EHCI DRIVER" message, and then it freezes. Nothing more. Any ideas?

At first, I would search and extract the alternate volume header from the end of the old partition. It should already be fine, because only the first 300MB are affected.

I fear, the extents overflow file will be destroyed.

Then run step 1 "-s1" with the disk device node (not the partition). This scans the whole disk.

Then run step 2.

Then calculate the old partition start with a reference file. See https://www.plop.at/en/hfsprescue/partition_offset.html

Then restore your files with the disk device node and the calculated offset.


Best regards

Was there only one partition on the drive?
Is it an external drive?

Hello Elmar,

I assume it was 're-partitioned' because i inadvertently imaged a 300mb 'iso' image across the 2tb hdd in the one step.  I just wonder if the HFS Volume header still has the catalog intact even partially to allow some reconstruction?

thank you and kind regards

Hello,

thats a good idea. It also opens the possibility to continue on any sector. Interesting for disks with hardware sector defects.

The next release will have this feature.

Best regards

Hello,

i formatted a HFS+ 2TB (1.2tb data) volume by mistake with 300mb of data.  I have not written to the drive since.

Do you mean, that you created a new partition with 300MB over the old one and formatted it?

Best regards
Elmar

hi,
i formatted a HFS+ 2TB (1.2tb data) volume by mistake with 300mb of data.  I have not written to the drive since.
I have recovered my files (raw) but wish to see if i can recover the partition table and directory structure.  Is this even possible?

Will the 'alternate volume header' have been re-written as well ? Or is there is a prospect of recovering the  headers, catalogs with which rebuild the original directory structure?

thank you

First, thank you so much for this utility.. It's sadly buried under a ton of BS apps on related Google searches, and it definitely saved my ass. I promise to donate as soon as my financial situation improves.

I hate to be that guy requesting something without any contribution, so I'll simply leave this here as a suggestion you can completely ignore. The only real issue I encountered was having to stop/restart the -s1 phase on an incredibly large volume. That was the result of a few suboptimal conditions on my part (not a typical use case), but if it's not an insane amount of work I think it'd be really helpful to be able to resume from the last block recorded in s1.log.

Regardless, you deserve a hero's reward for what you've made.

Boot Managers / Re: Best boot method: Option rom vs PXE Rom?
« Last post by davidm71 on March 26, 2018, 03:14:39 AM »
Also having an issue with configuring the option rom I created with the GUI configuration tool in that it reports an error when I try to save the configuration.

So let me explain the steps I have taken to try to build a LAN bootable ROM file:

1. plpbtrom.exe -nodisable -vendorid 0x10ec -deviceid 0x8168 -forceINT  plp.bin plpbtrom.rom plpbt.bin
2. Qemu -option-rom plpbt.bin ( to check if it worked )
3. plpcfgbtGui.exe -> Not Work!

Assume the cfg editor is not compatible with the plpbtrom file.

Thanks
