[syslinux] MEMDISK issues and Dell OptiPlex and Latitude systems

Pardon my delayed response. Winter weather is to blame.

Affirmative, sir. I have tried the 4 access methods listed. No change in the results.

You are correct regarding my testing history. It was originally PXELINUX, then on to ISOLINUX. Only now, I have returned to PXELINUX loading to better facilitate my testing across systems. The ISOLINUX routine (i.e. authoring CDs) was becoming tedious.

Any luck testing the image on some of your Dell systems? I hope I'm not the only one in the world with this odd display of MEMDISK behavior. (That would be my usual luck. Ouch.)

Thank you for offering some help with my posts. Here's wishing you a relaxing weekend.

safeint (default), int, raw and bigraw, possibly with both edd and
noedd (I think autodetect might go edd)?  If I recall correctly, you
were originally using PXELINUX to load this but started using ISOLINUX
to load MEMDISK and the initrd for some of your testing?
