I wouldn't mind if there was some tiny Linux-based initrd with 
afterwards booting any OS that syslinux also can boot. For example my 
Asus (Striker Extreme) board/BIOS tends to initialise USB speed to 1.1 
mode (25 seconds to load 10MB), even if the entire chain is 2.0 (20MB/s 
in Windows file transfer). MEMDISK an ISO just isn't fun at below 1MB/s.

Didn't have much luck with PLoP bootloader, which can set to 2.0
