I doubt there are many systems with the boot drive on another target than 0... So, unless someone speaks against it now, I suggest you go the easy route. :-D > >> Well I am curious to know what you did, can be this module published ? > > > > Patch attached.

It is attached to the message you just replied now... I also sent it in my personal email to you, dated Mon, 7 Jan 2019 13:49:28 +0100, with subject "Re: QXL.WIN sur carte SDHC". Attaching the "quick and dirty" patch again to this message. But as I wrote, it's in no way a proper fix (it simply introduces a 5s delay, which happens to be needed and to suffice for my overclocked Q60 and my brand/model of HD).
