[syslinux] Problems booting on Intel i9x5 motherboards.

I guess the potential causes for the problem are:
1. menu.c32
2. com32 library
3. Implementation of the Comboot API

If the command line version also calls the Comboot API (as opposed to a 
lower level hook), we can rule out (3). It might help if you try the 
advanced menu system. This is an option assuming you are using a CRT (as 
opposed to a console). The latest beta makes it easier to build your 
menu system.

If the advanced menu system also results in the same problem, then you 
can rule out menu.c32 code as a culprit. Hopefully, this can help 
identify the problem.
