No prob boot.. Wish ya the best on your install when the time comes..
On the PSOne that seems true. But on the big model, you can fool the console by adding something to press down the button which fools playstation to think cd case is closed. Then start booting psx with the original game with correct area code. Then you need to swap CD's by on-the-fly several times during the boot, between original cd and other area code cd or backup game. CD swapping usually ends when the screen with black background and PSX logo in front goes away, but I know atleast Dino Crisis and some other game needed an extra cd swap after that screen.
