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

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

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?

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