Oh man, is it!

Thanks Gert, i set the boot flag and extlinux work fine in my system!

In another installation on a qemu virtual machine, i don't remember to
have set the boot flag, and extlinux work.

Maybe, in the wiki[01] EXTLINUX have to be placed on a mention of it

to find a solution for my trouble and not found a mention for set a
boot flag on partition.

Thanks again Gert!
