Any better luck after enabling "LBA access" in boot1 as a build
option (added back a few weeks ago), or does the BIOS not support

BTW: Is this a genuine hard drive, or some form of disk-on-a-chip?
I seem to recall the BIOS geometry in some cases uses a small number
of sectors per track, which may push part of the 'a' partition
beyond the 1023 CHS limit.

Anyway, if some debugging code would help here, let me know.
