Booting problem
« on: November 19, 2009, 23:15:57 PM »
Hello,


I was lloking for a booting tools and i found this unique website.  But i dont know how to boot because my conditions are very poor. I have not new laptop, it doesn't have cd-rom support, bios dont have usb-boot preference support, there is no OS in that computer, there is only a floppy. So is it possible to make such a floppy which could make boot usb flash? By the way i have bootable usb flash with windows xp.

Thanks  :)

yes its possible, download the latest boot manager from http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanagerdl.html and write the plpbt.img file to a floppy and boot from it.
