USB booting on VMware Workstation 9 and 10

While VMware Workstation supports passthru of USB storage devices BIOS used for virtual machines is not USB boot capable.

As a workaround download Plop Boot Manager, extract plpbt.iso, mount it as CD on your VM, boot from CD and then select boot from USB. Blah. Spinning media is so yesterday.
