Looks like you're in the right track...with a working exploit, the screen turns white for a few seconds, then HD Loader loads. Perhaps you have a bad BOOT.ELF (HD Loader) file. I'd like to know how you got your HD Loader elf file to 199kb size...mine is about 478k size compressed.
On another note...when I fiddled around with this exploit thing a while back, I was burning too many CD-R's and wasting them (the art of trial and error). So what I did from then on was to run ExecFTP on the PS2. I just FTP files from my PC using FlashFXP as my FTP client to the PS2. I have total control of which files go to where, add, delete, etc...without wasting anymore CD-R's.
