I know very little about Plop Bootloader. What I recall is that it can be
installed to the hard drive or to external media. In this case, it was on
the hard drive.
As for what a modern UEFI-only computer will do, you may as well examine
entrails to get that answer. If you want to get an idea of the range of
possibilities, read this -
Some will let you put a bootloader in the MBR without screwing things up,
so it may be possible. Maybe I'll get brave and try it on the one uefi
machine I have.
I did try rEFInd on a usb stick, and it worked great. My 256MB thumb drive
is now a permanent home for that. Just in case.
