I've a usb-key that boot regularly on a PC using syslinux 2.09; well,
this PC (a thin-client) at the moment is the only PC that can boot from
USB in my office... and it usually booted oretty well, without any hacks...

After changed to syslinux 3.07, it stopped booting, showing a simple
"BOOT ERROR" message, nothing more...

Reverting to syslinux 2.09, it restarted to work...

Formatting the key, syslinux-ing it with 3.07 (with clean key, this 
time) and recopying the software, it restarted to work, but boot time is 
about 10 time slower than 2.09.... minutes to load kernel and initrd 
instead of seconds...

Note: I'm using win32/syslinux.exe
