I created a bootable usb flash with boot menu. One of items was "Boot 
from hard drive" with command "localboot 0x81". This item worked when 
this usb flash was prepared with syslinux 6.02. And it stopped working 
when the flash was prepared with syslinux 6.03. The message was

Booting from local disk...
Boot error

I extracted the source code, investigated, changed, compiled and used 
for the flash. This menu item works again.
