Yes, I tested more, with seabios directly as a payload, for giving my
old Lenovo x60 to someone and spending less time right now to explain
him how to configure well grub to be used as a payload.
And I saw the cursor issue, that's the most annoying issue because the
grub( ran in BIOS platform mode ) that is loaded from disk doesn't show
a cursor when editing the menu contents with 'e'

Thanks a lot, I'll try that as soon as possible, but it's like 23:30
now here, so it'll be for another day.
