    Ok. It will take some digging but I suspect the problem is
    that video.S is using a table or a variable placed over the original
    boot sector, and expecting it to be zero initialized.

    Finding that in the pile of 2000 lines of assembly could take a
    little while.

    Now at least we have something other people can try and reproduce
    this problem with.
