I think this is not what I need, because I can never know what is the 
MBR signature of the C: drive on the user's computer. Or do all the 
windowses use the same serial?

But here is another idea: I can perhaps know the MBR signature of my 
syslinux-booting USB Flash Key! :) So if I could tell chain.c32 to try 
all disks and load the first one which _doesn't_ have a specific 
signature, it would help me more I guess.
