SYSLINUX/MEMDISK issue (floppy image boot)
I'm setting up a USB key for multi-boot. It works like a champ in most regards, except that I can't get any DOS or Windows floppy images to boot.
Here's a sample entry from syslinux.cfg:
I've tried using the raw, bigraw, options and I've tried manually specifying CHS. Nothing helps.
when I attempt to boot one of the disk images, memdisk launches, displays some stuff (nothing to indicate an issue), and hangs after "Loading boot sector... booting...". On MS-DOS / Vista / Win98 floppies it stops right there. On an IBM PC-DOS floppy it gets as far as "Starting PC DOS..."
Booting a memtest floppy image, damnsmalllinux, or chntpw all work.
MEMDISK is version 3.11 and SYSLINUX is version 2.04.
The USB key is a Kingston Datatraveller II.
The test machine is an IBM Thinkpad T42.
Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
