This is in the BIOS mode. I changed all the syslinux files from the 6.0.3 to the 
6.0.4 versions when available. (There are a few C32 files that are not 
there??). In Virtual Box, the EFI doesn't work at all, but booting in BIOS 
mode, the kernels all work as in 6.0.3 and all the C32 options work except 
hdt that gives this error?

Thanks again.
