Hi all, 1st post of which i hope will be many.. :)
I have installed this on my USB, and have had the problem of my system not booting from the USB.
SO... I did a little searching and found a boot manager called PloP
which allows you to boot USB keys, i tried it and as far as i can see it works.
As i have pointed out in the link, #7 shows an alternative which allows you to use it without install, and several site suggest something along the lines that you can put the ".bin" of the download in the USB and just make a small menu.lst modification from what i can see..
as seen here:
So what i was thinking is that that change can be made through a quick automatic/manual change on the computer, and then anyone can boot into APE via USB and PLoP...
If i have missread somewhere forgive me , but as far as i can see, this should work, and will help a lot of people...
UPDATE: Ok from what i can see, that menu.lst is linux specific. Still looking to see if anything is necesary for windows..
Ps. I seem to be having a problem retrieving the SAM files, i have tried searching google and the forums, but it seems to be unique, or noobish :P
I choose 1, as the file is on the C: drive, and i have found the file manually with explorer so i know its there, but when i choose option 1 in getsam, i get:
----SAM FILE NOT FOUND AT C:\WINDOWS\System32\config\----
SAM File Not Found Manually Enter Path? (y/n)
So i enter the path manually and it still cant find the file. So... ya..
The thing is that if i run the USB Pocket Knife from menu.bat, with dumps using PWSAM &FGSAM, they both return results. Atleast i think they do...
