  1. I booted DOS from USB and I cannot write on the drive

    My drivers have no write routines implemented. You want to know why? My intention was to have USB drivers for UHCI, OHCI and EHCI controllers in my tiny boot manager. The space to install the boot manager without the need of a partition is very limited. So there was no space left for write routines.

  2. Are there plans to add write support in the future

    It's in my mind, but there are no fix plans.

  3. The boot manager detect's my usb cdrom, but booting hangs

    USB CD/DVD drives are not supported.

  4. My USB keyboard does not work when I booted from USB

    USB keyboards are not supported by my drivers. When you boot Linux or Windows, then your keyboard will work again when those operating systems are taking control over the USB hardware.

  5. Can I use my USB PC-Card (PCMCIA CardBus) to boot from USB

    Yes, with the pcmcai version of the boot manager

  6. I want to install the boot manager from my USB device, but I cannot choose my internal hard disk

    The problem with installing on the internal (in this case the second) hard disk with the installer is, that the installer imports the partitions from the usb device and thinks this are the partitions of the first hard disk. When the boot manager boot's later from the real hard disk then the imported partitions are not correct. You see the problem? Sure it would be possible to add an option to handle this situation, but there are so many other ways to install the boot manager, that there are no plans to add this feature to the installer (except, many people request this feature).

  7. I use plpbt.bin and it forgets my settings

    You have to configure plpbt.bin with plpcfgbt. All changes you make within the boot manager menu are only valid until you reboot. The changes are not saved.

  8. I cannot boot from my SATA CD/DVD drive

    SATA CD/DVD drives are not supported. Only IDE CD/DVD drives are working.

  9. I was reading VIEW/EDIT/COPY data in the forum, where is this menu

    'VIEW/EDIT/COPY' data has been renamed to 'Edit MBR/Import data' (setup/partitions/partition edit).

  10. Main menu network boot: !PXE structure was not found in UNDI

    Your network rom is a 'PXE Split ROM'. Currently only 'Monolithic' roms are supported

  11. My USB DVD drive is detected, but I cannot boot

    Booting from USB CD/DVD drives is not supported by the current usb driver
