Heh. The only thing I can think of right now is an interrupt not masked by the cli you issued. You could try inserting a `mov ss, something' just before the jump. This will prevent any processor from doing any interrupts, as the immediately next instruction should be `mov sp, something' (it was documented somewhere).

Does booting DOS, and running a DOS-extended program succeed or fail? -- DoubleF New York is real. The rest is done with mirrors.
