Tested with WinXP in a VM:

Before the test, original boot code behind partition boot sector was 
destroyed.
(dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda1 bs=512 seek=1 count=20)

Then this fails:

 root=(hd0,1)
 chainloader (hd0,1)+1
 boot

But with the patch this still works:

 root=(hd0,1)
 ntldr /ntldr
 boot

Thanks.
