While this rectifies the issue, it doesn't help me understand why it is happening in the first place.

comment Boot Linux from DOS (with loadlin.exe etc)
That doesn't help, the syslinux.cfg file is loaded before DOS (because SYSLINUX is a boot loader). I need a solution that allows me to boot into DOS, run some DOS tools and then load Linux while I'm inside DOS. loadlin.exe allows me to do this but appears to have some issues on some machines.

That command installs SYSLINUX as a bootloader on a disk, it doesn't load Linux from a DOS session...

@Wyzard: I work in notebook servicing where a large number of diagnostics and tools are written in DOS because it is much easier to interface with the BIOS and peripherals.

comment Boot Linux from DOS (with loadlin.exe etc)
How do I use syslinux to load Linux when the computer is already booted into DOS? I had a look at the documentation but it doesn't seem to have an .exe file that I can just run and give the path to the kernel image and initrd.
