Funny... I just tested the USA KELFS, even moved them to my SCPH-10000 and they work fine even with mismatched MBR (JPN 1.00 utility disc)
What I don't know is if your disc has the same KELFs as mine. I need to check the original source hosdsys.elf and fsck.elf files for comparation... PM me.
If the KELF files on the __system partition are wrong the MBR will just keep trying to load them over and over. fsck is executed only when the MBR detects problems with the APA partitions otherwise hdosdsys is executed.
And the DISC PPF files are for the utility discs. They're SONY discs, not Square game discs.
Why the hell people aways think that the HDD Utility disc is part of the FFXI game ?
