Plop implements bios USB stack and grub doesn't. If your computer doesn't support bios USB, then ntldr/bootmgr can't work since they rely on BIOS. You can still load Linux or bsd but not ntldr/bootmgr

Hello.
Prior to this GRUB, I used GRUB4DOS bootloader and there was the same problem, but it was already solved.

Problem:
When i use ntldr module to load bootmgr (on USB-flash drive) - I have error with 0xc000000e code. And no matter, if I try to boot without init USB-drive or with init USB-drive(nativedisk) - I had the same error code.

When an error does not occur:
If I load PLoP Boot Manager(linux16 /boot/plpbt.bin) and then try to boot bootmgr via ntldr module - I no have this error code, and it work as it should.

What does the PLoP bootloader and what does not do that GRUB bootloader?

Specifications:
Old PC with BIOS boot support USB (VT82xx/62xx)
