i know it's an old tread but it might bu usefull for someone else, to do that you will need an other pc connected to te same network as your other old-PC, so on your PC wich you have windows install on ( i presume ) use Tftpd32 it's a dhcp and network booting daemon.

Download grep4dos

Set tftpd32 to have grldr as boot file.

Download plop boot manager

on the old-PC set it to a PXE-boot or network boot.

turn off dhcpd from your router of you're using it

Boot the old-pc

once your in grep, select command line

type in :

map --mem (pd)/plpbt.img (fd0)
map --hook
root (fd0)
chainloader +1

then you'll be in plop boot manager and you'll be able to boot from usb from now

this is the only way i've found for my old fujitsu laptop. doesn't support usb booting, neither have a floppy/cd-rom
