Create a PCI boot manager option ROM
« on: February 01, 2011, 11:35:30 AM »
Create a PCI boot manager option ROM (save in bios)

I absolutely don't understand anything.

Change ROM of built LAN Card with plpbtrom.bin? if it's not work may I back native ROM? How boot PLoP - through IBA FE Slot 0258 v4110???

I try plpbtrom.bin, press ESCAPE but don't return to BIOS. I find ROM flash utilities to my built LAN Card. Help!

Google gives a terrible translation. This have no sense because I absolutely don't understand what to do, not only because my English very poor, but in programming sense.

My MotherBoard P4P800 SE Bios AMI
 MotherBoard  have integrated Marvel Yukon Internet Adapter
I download from Home Site last flash utility 88E8001
http://www.marvell.com/support.html
Flash PLPBTROM.BIN????



My MotherBoard USB died, I want make PCI to USB bootable

i dont know what i should explain.

you cannot simply flash plpbtrom.bin to your bios. you have to download your bios rom. replace the network rom  part that is in your bios rom file with plpbtrom.bin and then flash the bios chip with the new bios rom file.

but flashing bios is dangerous!

I hope that's need only LAN ROM flashing. and no changes in MAIN ROM. I don't want change main BIOS. Thanks

Is it correct - if I flash plpbt.bin only to LAN CARD, and choose in Bios Boot Menu - PXE BOOT, PLoP don't boot?

I think that when I choose "Yukon PXE" in Bios boot menu, "Main Bios" boot "LAN Bios".

When I read this, I thought that the main BIOS runs firmware embedded on the motherboard network card, but instead is enclosed plop

when you did everything correct, then the boot manager should start when you select the network option.

or to the rom of a network card

old computers dont have an onboard network card. years ago, you had to buy a network card and plug it into the slot of the motherboard. many of those network cards had an optional boot rom to boot from the network. the text above means that you can store the boot manager on such boot roms. do you understand? you have a completely different hardware.

you have a pnp bios and you have to replace the network option rom in the bios file with the boot manager. (you did that)

when yukpxe.rom is a boot rom for your network card that is not included in the bios rom (when this is the case, then you are still able to boot and repair the network rom when something goes wrong), then flash it with plpbt.rom.

no risk, no fun.  8) you want it, then don't talk, just do it

yukondg.exe - says that where is any ROM in my lan card, when I try to back up it, I get only fully empty file. but when I connect a lan cable to this lan card which I never use, because I have PCI Intel M100, and try to boot from bios. "DHCP server find" , "exit from PXE Rom" and boot from HD. so I am not sure where my real Lan Card ROM.

IBA FE Slot - it's Intel Boot Agent for LAN Boot. it's universal and not belong from biult card to motherboard or PCI, all model of Intel cards also universal. LAN Card flash by BOOTUTIL, ROM have unstandart form BootIMG.FLB - which is container with all types of net card ROM. If you save installing firmware you get usual ROM file

http://www.intel.com/support/ru/network/adapter/pro100/bootagent/sb/cs-008362.htm
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/detail_desc.aspx?agr=y&dwnldid=19186&lang=rus

If find a method to patch or change Intel Lan Card ROM - this gives simple universal method to boot PLoP.

Try to flash plpbt.rom using UniFlash 1.40 to Intel and Yukon, hope that Uniflash can't check ROM file. Unsuccessful. 
I think Uniflash don't know this chipsets - FLASH in menu locked, and backup - zero file.
---------------------------------------
uniflash -pcirom -e plpbt.rom

unknown chip!

I think that I can't find utilities which may flash Intel Lan Card memory with random ROM, I try Uniflash in force mode without succes. BootUtil deassembly show that it's made without assembler. :'(
If I go to technical support and flash it there with programmator(?) may I hope that PLoP may work as Extended BIOS? How you debug plop.rom when write it?

This work. Author of FLASH utility makes version for Intel 100M, but only in uncompile variant . It must be compile under linux with rare C compiler. I am wait 4 month, now one guy find my post, compile it and falsh his Intel 100M with PLPBT.ROM - and say that all OK. But don't leave compile flash-prog

its difficult to understand what you want to say. please, when your english is bad, then use some translation tool like google. when you write some words that nobody understands, then your posting is useless.

but in the uncompiled version. it must be compiled under Linux rare
C compiler, I've been waiting four months, and now this guy found my post,
compile it and plop burned in ROM network card, says it worked out.
so now does not have a compiled version

Google allow translate only words. slavic's language use absolutely other sentence word oder, Poland closer to Latin, Ukrainiane the middle, and Russian absolutely not like English. When preposition.....

Oh, my English!

I do such experiment:
I use plpbt.img from native archive which I download from your site - 5.0.12 version. I boot it from HD with GRUB4DOS, with maping for memory, and try to boot CD disk making with GRUB4DOS - no correct boot, GRUB from CD says on command 'root': corrupt partition table. And do the same using 5.0.8 version - all is OK.

PS. From the point of view USB - are this version 8 and 12 different?

5.0.11.2 - OK

I re-flash my NetCard with 11.2. as you say change config, all is OK with CD. Now I must try USB, but I have not any USB device.

ps One little idea - it's be usefull to have option to see and boot logical partition too

VIA VT6212L 5-Port USB 2.0 PCI Controller Card
Transcend TS4GJF600

Why only force USB 1.1 mode 2 ???
=====================================
Because VIA VT6212L 5-Port USB 2.0 PCI Controller Card have 3.3 V instead of 5.0 V so I need pci to usb with NEC chip

http://s016.radikal.ru/i335/1105/36/ee54d96cadc0.jpg
=====================================
The reason was in PCI slot version. change to ST Lab U165 USB2.0 4+1 ports VIA chip all OK with USB 2.0

conflict is the wrong word, but its because xp boot and usb regardless that its an iso on an usb drive. no xp usb -> iso can't be accessed -> booting not possible

a conflict can be between two usb drivers, but in this case, there is no second driver. the win usb driver is simply not active at this stage and win does not use the plop usb driver -> no conflict

boot plpbt.rom - usb - grub - acronis.ISO - OK
boot plpbt.rom - usb - grub - plpbt.bin - reset

i only tried it to see if bart pe from usb does or does not work from usb with my boot manager. it worked. thats long time ago. i did nothing special, see the bart pe for usb instructions how to install it. i cannot do that for you. btw. i am no windows user, for me it doesn't matter if windows boots from usb or not. please don't pain me with windows questions.

please, first search an answer in the web and when you find nothing then ask. i am tired to answer always the same questions. ex. why the usb driver does not use the full power of usb 2 speed. search in the forum to get an answer.

btw. your table row 2: usb 1.1 has no hispeed. only low and full speed.

EDIT: i think your posting is about speed. like ever you didn't write a clear question or statement

As Italk above, at the very beginning I flash to Intel Chip last plpbt-5.0.12 version of PLoP. But when I try it I found that it impossible to boot any CD disk. I reflash Intel with plpbt-5.0.11-2 and all is OK. When I try 12 version booting it with GRUB from HD the same result.

Trying 5.0.13 - CD - OK.
Now plop don't show Acronis Secure Zone. It's commonly good because it can't boot it and I always can't understand which partition is what.
It's test I wait for stable to flash it in Intel.
Hope USB 2.0 full speed

little problem with Transdent flash. In most cases of dividing it to so some partition or two to flash devices PLoP see only the first. I decide this with BooIt -put it to very first partition (device) and than BootIt see all others, but what rule to make HD Flash to PLoP work with it correctly?

*correctly - after choose USB in PLoP menu, PLoP reboot and show Flash like HD disk with all it partitons

sory - strange but the difference was in MBR I use, if I use NTLDR MBR - after booting some program don't see HD, if I use GRUB MBR all is OK.

May be it belong only to TRANSCEND - after PLoP, to boot second disk on one flash device OR to boot some partitions on same flash device, put at first partition(disk) BootIt . It has his own USB drive
