actually having similar problems with "boot next", but is without a new dos image or custom software, and all it says "press key to reboot" anybody know what could be going on?

You BIOS doesn't support the "boot next device command".
If I am right, the "boot next device command" sends the value of "-1" back to the BIOS (= Device not found). Then the BIOS tries to boot the next device.
You can use the chain.c32 module instead.
* Chainload a hard disk (currently rather braindead.)
* Usage: chain hd<disk#> [<partition>] [options]
* chain fd<disk#> [options]
* chain mbr:<id> [<partition>] [options]
* chain boot [<partition>] [options]
* ... e.g. "chain hd0 1" will boot the first partition on the first hard
* The mbr: syntax means search all the hard disks until one with a
* specific MBR serial number (bytes 440-443) is found.
* Partitions 1-4 are primary, 5+ logical, 0 = boot MBR (default.)
* loads the file <loader> **from the SYSLINUX filesystem**
* instead of loading the boot sector.
* loads at and jumps to <seg>:0000 instead of 0000:7C00.
* equivalent to -seg 0x2000 -file <loader>, used with WinNT's loaders
* equivalent to -seg 0x60 -file <loader>, used with FreeDOS kernel.sys.
* equivalent to -seg 0x70 -file <loader>, used with DOS' io.sys.
* if the disk is not fd0/hd0, install a BIOS stub which swaps
* the drive numbers.
* change type of primary partitions with IDs 01, 04, 06, 07,
* 0b, 0c, or 0e to 1x, except for the selected partition, which
* is converted the other way.
