The hard drive I want to boot is the only fixed drive in the computer,
is NTFS and can boot normally to Windows XP, with native ntldr.  Since
the usb-disk is formatted as USB-HDD, when booting from usb, hd0 is
usb-disk itself, and will return to syslinux boot menu; I tried modify
hd0 to hd1 in your line, but same as before. The screen shows:
Error loading operating system_
Then it halts and can only press ctrl-alt-del.
