You could try adapting the floppy bootstrap code for the hard disk you
are using, you will need to adjust the sector and track counts and the
device identifier. You will have to find some BIOS documentation to
tell you what to do.

If the CF implements an IDE interface then you can boot from that in
exactly the same way as from a hard disk.
