Making VMware Workstation boot from USB

Found this interesting item in my mailbox from a colleguea of me:

Hi All,

I stumbled across a handy utility that will let you boot from a USB key in VMware Workstation 6.5.

http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html

I downloaded the CD ISO and mounted this into the CD of a VMware Workstation VM with no hard disk. Once booted I connected the USB key to the VM, selected USB from the boot loader and happily booted ESXi from a USB key 

I suspect it would work in Virtual PC as well, but I don’t have this installed to test it.



Indeed worth testing ................
