I have another idea. Could you try GRUB 1.97 and GRUB Legacy? A similar
report on our BTS seems to indicate that GRUB Legacy works. Major
difference between Legacy and latest GRUB2 is that GRUB2 uses C-wrappers
around BIOS calls whereas in GRUB Legacy they are in asm. The change
happened after 1.97
