PLOP Boot Manager Not Loading After Install

Postby GabrielKnight123 » 2019-3-12 @ 17:12

I was having troubles with XFDISK boot manager so I uninstalled it and installed Plop from a floppy but after install (install says everything went good) I press number 9 for a reboot and I get to my DDO software for the HDD with the "press spacebar to boot a floppy or C for CDrom drive" and it gets stuck there, I have both Dos 6.21 and Win 95 already installed and I can use SFDISK or XFDISK and see both partitions for FAT16 Dos and FAT32 95, only one is active the other inactive or hidden I have tried both setting inactive/hidden but the same thing happens, im using Plop 5.0.15 and used the image file for the floppy from the install folder with an image writer for the floppy disk, I dont know the system requirements for Plop but my system is a 486DX2 66MHz with 16MB ram I have tried the text version in Plops install menu but it still hangs. I have tried uninstalling Plop and repairing the master boot record in XFDISK and then reinstalling Plop but a no go.

I'm guessing your DDO won't cooperate with PLOP.

I used another hard drive 10GB but the Bios only sees 504MB without DDO and made two partitions both FAT16 and I still have the same problem so maybe the DDO is not the problem.

On Plops forum someone said the minimum ram needed is 18MB just in case someone else tries this on their system.
