...Delete your test files and use my tool and you will see it should work on your system too.

Deleted test entries in boot.ini and left this:

;
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT
c:\grldr="Grub4dos"

Run the program, gave admin privileges when asked and rebooted- no new entry in boot menu.
Checked boot.ini- it was not modified. Win7 x64.

Partition layoutand drive letters from 7:

Boot.ini is on E:\ as seen in Win7. PLoP folder is present in C\Windows with 2 files inside.

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB

I guess the bolded part is exactly to avoid a continuous "running after" the new releases:

Release Notes:
v0.9.9.0 12/17/09
GRUB4DOS removed. Now it uses only PLoP!
Added support for Vista, 2008 and Windows 7!
Fixed a potential bug with the uninstall process.
If you want to use your own PLoP files put them in a folder called PLoP inside the directory with SiginetUSB.exe

I am currently using a floppy disk to use plop on systems without the usb boot bios option. So this is great since if the system still boots to windows I can now use this to get plop running and boot my savior usb right?

excellent idea and work! thanks man

@Siginet or someone other who has set up plop under win7.

if the win7 install was not an upgrade then there is no ntldr and ntdetect.com which are needed for the {ntldr} option in the BCD settings.

can someone please write the output of a working setup from bcdedit.ecxe /enum ?

Sorry to be a noob, but could someone explain how to do this, or provide a link to an explanation? That would fix the problem of trying to use this on a "blank" or "clean" system where Windows is not installed.

Cheers and Regards

Siginet's PLoP USB Boot Manager Installer

Which all PLoP files need to be put inside PLoP folder for using the latest version? Only plpbt.bin?
There is a confusing array of files within PLoP downloads!

You may try a newer PLoP version from here:
http://download.plop...lpbt-5.0.14.zip

Replace plpbt.bin with the one from the archive.

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB
