hangs trying to boot USB 2.0
« on: January 21, 2011, 15:42:46 PM »
Hello, I'm trying to use PLoP boot manager to test several bootable USB devices using VirtualBox (which doesn't support USB booting on it's own).  This works fine if I disable USB 2.0 on my virtual machine, but "hangs" when it's looking for the drive to boot with USB 2.0 enabled.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Btw., when you want to boot Linux from USB in Virtualbox, then use PlopKexec. It should work fine.
