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

http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/download.html

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

In the folder you extracted the files to will be a .ISO called plpbt.iso burn this to a CD using your burning software

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
