Have not much time today. Can you tell me if those links link to solutions or just maybes?
You shouldn't mix statements with questions this way.
You posted a number of things:
This is a seemingly rhetorical question:
Shouldn't it be possible to do the same thing Plop does, just with a better/different OS/drivers?
To which my answer is "yes, AFAIK".
This is a statement:
Plop is a bootmanager and supose to fit into the MBR.
that is actually "wrong"
PLoP can also be chainloaded by grub4dos, as an example. (and also as - read only - DOS driver)
These are statements:
For our purposes, there is no such limit. We could do fine with a floppy sized solution.
Which are "correct"
and need not a reply.
This, notwithstanding the final question mark:
Unfortunately i don't know, what requirement this OS would have to meet, that the loaded image could then be hooked?
appears as a statement, that I take for correct (in the sense that I am pretty sure you don't know about it
), and thus needs no reply.
This, is a question:
Do you? (Please answer only with yes or no. )
that makes no sense and that would be pointless to reply to, whether I know
what requirement this OS would have to meet, that the loaded image could then be hooked
(whatever you mean by that
) or not it won't change anything.
This is a statement:
Have not much time today.
About which I feel sorry
for you and hope sincerely that tomorrow you will have more time
Maybe you are thinking of something like :
This is an otiose

The essence of my previous post is, in 5 easy points:
- PLoP is not necessarily "constrained" to the MBR(+hidden sectors )
- nice idea (from the very little I can understand of it )
- the same (maybe) idea already came out
- IF you could confirm that it is the same idea , I would appreciate it as it would mean that I actually understood what yours was about (or please explain your idea in better detail)
- Since I cannot understand exactly what you are asking about I cannot give you a "yes or no" answer, though any of them would be useless anyway.
