Add the Plop Boot Manager Install program to the Windows boot menu?
{y,n}y

Copy plpinstc.bin to C:\plop
        1 file(s) copied.
Copy plpbt4win.exe to C:\plop
        1 file(s) copied.

Creating boot menu entry

There was an error

Press any key to continue . . .

This error comes when your hard disk is using GPT. The Boot Manager does not support GPT.
