If you install the latest boot blocks and try to boot all
you get is 'read header'.
Install new boot blocks (on a Sony Vaio 505TX) and then try to boot.
I've not tried it on any other machines; getting my Vaio to boot
again has wasted enough time.
Reverting to the boot blocks from 1.4.1 made it work again.
I wish I knew.
