; Simple Master Boot Record, including support for EBIOS extensions.
;
; The MBR lives in front of the boot sector, and is responsible for
; loading the boot sector of the active partition.  The EBIOS support
; is needed if the active partition starts beyond cylinder 1024.
;
; This MBR determines all geometry info at runtime.  It uses only the
; linear block field in the partition table.  It does, however, pass
; the partition table information unchanged to the target OS.
;
; This MBR should be "8086-clean", i.e. not require a 386.
;

%include "bios.inc"

;
; Note: The MBR is actually loaded at 0:7C00h, but we quickly move it down to
; 0600h.

; thing, use a far jump to canonicalize the address.  This also makes
