Boot from USB without BIOS Support; In the following tutorial, we explain how to create a PLoP Boot Manager CD that can be used to boot from your USB Flash Drive. This is useful for computer systems that do not support booting from USB in BIOS. The PLoP Boot Manager created by Elmar Hanlhofer, works by first loading essential USB drivers, CD/DVD drivers, and Hard Disk Drivers. The user is then presented with a (Boot Menu) menu of possible boot devices detected by PLoP. The user can then proceed to select a device to try and boot from.
