hi,

PLoP allow boot from USB devices even if BIOS not allow this - PCI to USB Controller for example. But whats happen with driver after boot

the boot manager usb drivers stays in the ram to provide access to the usb drive until another software (linux, windows, any other usb driver) takes control of the usb hardware.

and  is there any way to use USB Legacy for KeyBoard or Mouse???

yes, you have to load an usb driver that takes control of the usb hardware. the boot manager usb driver will loose the control of the usb hardware

Thanks.
I mean... PLoP (super!!!!) allow to BIOS see USB but only mass storage. keyboard and mouse don't work with PLoP driver and USB legacy too. This for case when BIOS not have USB but not for cases when BIOS don't see added USB through PCI to USB, sorry for my English
