You haven't tried hard enough saikee ...
Go find a Win95 system, and build a floppy there - use it to build the MBR, and try and load an XP system located above cylinder 1024.
What about a Dos 3.3 disk - I'd be willing to bet it couldn't deal with a LBA disk at all.
Just my mind meandering in the New Year - haven't tried either of the above ...
