Go to:

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

and download plpbt-5.0.14.zip. Click on the archive and extract plpbt.bin in your /boot directory.

1)If you have grub-legacy edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst inserting:


Code:
title PLoP Boot Manager
root (hdX,Y)
kernel /boot/plpbt.bin


where X and Y refers to the partition which contains your grub: X is equal to 0 and Y is equal to (Z-1) if your main partition is sdaZ.

2)If you have grub2 (ubuntu grub-pc...) open with geany a new file and copy as its content:

Code:
#! /bin/sh -e

echo "Adding plpbt" >&2
cat << EOF
menuentry "plpbt" {
   set root=(hdX,Y)
   linux16   /boot/plpbt.bin
}
EOF


and save it as 12_plpbt in /etc/grub.d. X and Y refers to the partition which contains your grub2: X is 0 and Y now have the same number of your sdaY main partition. Then in console:

Code:
cd /etc/grub.d
sudo chmod 755 12_plpbt
sudo update-grub


Now using grub you have at menu plpbt (plop bootmanager) which helps you to boot usb drives.
Plpbt booted in my case a logical partition in an external usb hd in which I installed a linux distribution with persistence by unetbootin. My bios refused to boot that partition.

Subject description: whose bios does not support Sd card booting
 

I followed the procedure for grub-legacy in a netbook in which I installed grub4dos. The netbook's bios does not support Sd card booting. By plop bootmanager I was able to boot a Sd card in which I installed puppy by Universal Installer choosing usb boot in plop menu.

I have been getting by with using a USB to SD card ADAPTER is why I mention this.
As USB boot support is supported but the sd card slot is not.

Yes. Grub4dos is compatible with the same menu entries of grub legacy. Look where is your menu.lst and there create a /boot dir where you'll put plpbt.bin. X and Y refer to the partition where is menu.lst and /boot directory.

I had trouble to boot by plop a unetbootin install in a usb hd. Some timeout was needed at some stage of boot process which freezed. The trick is to select USB in plop menu by cursor and type Alt-u instead of Enter. Plop will ask Skip or Boot device taking time. Type one time "s" (Skip): plop will ask again for Skip or Boot device. This time type Enter and now I had success to boot. This behaviour of plop is due to usb devices attached to your pc which can change the normal timing of boot process.
