In the next article I will teach them, thanks to Plop Boot Manager, How to boot from USB from computers with bios what they do not support booting through this system. Through this system we will be able to try or install any distro Linux from Pen Drive, And we will not have to walk burning CDs, because in times of crisis is not the thing to go buy CDs, let alone DVDs. Sometimes surfing the net surprises you with articles as good as the one I found on the blog Simi project published by iavex, So I decided to share it with all the fans of Ubunlog. The program in question is called Plop Boot Manager, It’s completely free and we can download from this link.
How to use Plop Boot Manager
The first thing we have to do once downloaded the zipped file will be decompress anywhere and record the image plpbt.iso on a CD.
in a Pen Drive we will have to record the Linux distro or distros we want bootear from one’s own USBFor this we have UNetbootin or Yumi.
with UNetbootin we can create a USB booteable of any image from a Linux distro while using Yumi we can create the USB booteableof several Linux distros at once and select on boot what we want to use.
Once we have the CD with the image of Plop Boot Manager and the Pen Drive from our Linux distro or distros, we just have to boot the computer and configure it from the bios to be able to boot from the CD.
Of course we will have to insert the CD of the image of Plop Boot Managerand the Pen Drive, and if we have followed all the steps well, we will find this image at the boot of our system:
Now all that’s left is that select the USB option and the computer will boot from the inserted Pen Drive.
