I haven't looked at any of the specs, but I would expect any BIOS that provides a virtual drive off of a linearly addressed device (like a CD/DVD) would support LBA access of that device?

Or a better way to embed grub into an image made with dd and have it recognize the drive properly from an el torito hard disk emulation?

I'm trying to use this image with el torito
