    Ok. I made that. How do I do now? I don't see manual how to install Free McBoot.
    Also, What is uLaunchELF? I read difference forums and it's mention uLaunchELF.
    First all, How to install Free McBoot?
    Second, What is uLaunchELF and how to install that?
    Finally, How to play video games PS1 and PS2 from external Hard disk drive?

    Why is this forum still open for new topics... Reported so someone can move it.

    PS2 games from USB don't work very well (I read only about 70% work and there are a lot of issues with lag because the USB 1.1 in the PS2 is too slow), PS1 I don't think is possible, I might be wrong there though.

    If you install FMCB, uLaunchELF should be included with it. It's simply a homebrew launcher.

    The Real Jdbye is correct, USB 1.1 sucks, Ethernet is the preferred method of launching non-disc based backups. As fro ULaunchELF, it's a file manager included with the FreeMCBoot package. Just burn the disc like the guide tells you to, shove it into your system and it should boot like a normal game. ;)

    A modchip shouldn't have much effect on homebrew. Besides stuff like the ability to run programs from burned discs, or forcing the optical drive to allow direct installs of imports and backups to a hard drive (without needing a slide card etc).
