Workaround to get VMWare boot from USB

Plop Boot Manager Menu
This is probably not news to most VMWare users: Even with the latest VMWare Workstation 9 version, there is still no support from VMWare to boot from a USB drive.

The workaround most people use is to download Plop Boot Manager from 'http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/download.html', which acts like a bootable CD and gives you a list of menu options to boot from, one of which is 'USB' (see the screenshot).

I must admit that compared to Live CD, .iso boot options, USB booting is less common but you would think the most advanced solution in this space can do that...
