IIRC some BIOS versions are pretty picky regarding long kernel names
in isolinux/syslinux config (some years ago, around isolinux v3.11
there was a change that modified the behaviour WRT isolinux). Iff
you're interested in further debugging it you could try comparing
isolinux/syslinux versions (bisect it) and see whether it's a
specific version that breaks it for you.
