Ok, so what happens is: syslinux 3.11 works, 3.31 (both the unmodified
and the SuSE version) does not.

It starts working if you copy only 512 bytes in the code fragment in
comment 5. But that code is not executed (it's the localboot path,
but you are going for installation). So a good question would be: why?

Can you put a hardware break point (or whatever equivalent of that in xen)
on that 512 and see whether it is read accidentally by some other part
of the code? Otherwise I don't see why it could make a difference.

BTW, does the bug occur only with intel-vt or with amd-svm, too?

BTW2, though I can't make much sense out of the log in comment 4, but it
crashed at f000:e209 which would be inside the (emulated) BIOS, not the
boot loader. Or not?
