there is an alternative way to add PLoP boot manager entry to vista boot menu instead of using bcdedit.exe
for example here running without harddisk installation
1. generate file plpbtldr.bin , for example : c:\plop\plpbtldr.bin
2. create new file using text editor and save file as boot.ini in drive c (vista partition) , add following entry in boot.ini file.

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
c:\plop\plpbtldr.bin="PLoP Boot Manager"

now you should see PLoP boot manager from windows vista boot menu.
using this methode just simple as windows xp and leave vista bcd file untouched.
to remove entry from vista boot menu, just delete boot.ini file


cool :)
thats a better solution than bcdedit. thank you. i add this to the boot manager docu.

best regards
