Quote1 - PLoP got installed on the USB Key. When booting from the key, the Bios makes it look as the first HD of the system. Why can I not then use the boot manager to start XP on the first partition of the internal HD, which is identified as second HD? The 81h flag on the first partition should allow it to boot, shouldn't it?
Quote2 - I want to be able to undo the installation of the boot manager, that was the reason for creating a bootable USB Key and using the DOS installation method since I don't have a floppy drive. The plpback.bin file is 32K long or 63 sectors of 512 bytes. Which data are saved in this backup file? It doesn't seem to match the first 63 sectors of my USB key before the install. Can you tell me where does the boot manager install itself? I plan to do a manual backup of the sectors using dd.
Quote3 - my next installation option would be the Windows boot menu - would you agree?
