I just finished a little tool that helps boot some computers from
[other] USB boot drives - the Chainloader

The chainloader is useful for middle-aged computers, for example
computers without a CD/DVD drive, where it can be hard to boot from a
USB drive, or when you want to run from a fast USB 3 drive that is
unwilling to boot.


What is new, why a new tool? Isn't it enough to be able to use mkusb or
the other tools?

The answer is in this tutorial 'Howto help USB boot drives'


Phill, can the compressed image file be uploaded to your server? Maybe
it is too small to have an own link or page. Maybe it can share a page
with mkusb. What do you think?

Best regards
