Hi Mattias,

I don't know if you tried the alternative cfg file I suggested for 
troubleshooting by comparison ( 
http://www.syslinux.org/archives/2013-March/019702.html ).

Your description sounds as if some path or cfg file name is incorrect 

BTW, ifcpu64.c32 has no "adequate" or "correct" or "expected" 
behavior when it is started without parameters. Only ifcpu.c32 (not 
ifcpu64.c32) will show you its usage when executed with no 

Is there any new information or tests' results you could provide?
