  For what it is worth, I have a new ~120G on modern hardware and I
partitioned it for 10GB XP (main), and then 3x34GB for XP, 4.9 and 5.2.
The bootloader I'm using came out of 4.9 and all the bootable partitions
can be loaded just fine.

  Doesn't really help you solve your problem, but the software is
functioning in some situations with other motherboard variations.
