I suspect there is at least one bug on Loïc's loader (it's likely that it can't 
load the system if the partition is beyond 4GB because the LBA packet is using 
a 32-bit address), but that's trivial to fix though.

In the mean time I'm amending the hybrid GPT/MBR loader with what I presume are 
the fixes that made the loader work for him and will update the ticket 
accordingly so people can test it. Will upload after testing.
