Today’s blog will show how to boot from USB on a PC that doesn’t support boot from USB.

It works by making the PC boot from a CD and then the software on the CD calls the USB drive

The software can be downloaded from the following location


You need to download the plpbt-5.0.14.zip file and extract files

Boot your PC that doesn’t support USB off this CD and you will shown a menu list select the USB option to boot from USB Drive as see below
