Correction: The i386 Refracta iso was made without the uefi options and
looks like this:

     xorriso -as mkisofs -r -J -joliet-long -l \
 -isohybrid-mbr /path/to/isohdpfx.bin \
     -partition_offset 16 -V "snapshot-live-cd"  -b isolinux/isolinux.bin
 -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot \
     -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
 -o "$snapshot_dir"/"$filename" iso/


When you say it won't boot, what actually happens? Do you get as far as
the boot menu? Does it start to load the kernel? If you can get past the
boot menu at all, then press TAB at the boot menu and remove 'quiet' from
the command. Maybe it will give some useful information on screen.
