The fliptop lid is the least invasive method of modding a PS2. I can't think of a good argument against it. I don't understand your reluctance to go with it, unless you don't want to void your warranty. It's not like you'd have a warranty with a Japanese system, anyway. To me, going with a new system would be a waste of money, unless you can get one for extremely cheap. I've had two systems before, and eventually just decided to go with one modded system to save myself the trouble.
I'm sorry to keep harping on this, but it really is the best option and totally safe for people without dual chainsaw/hammer/machinegun hands.
As for games not working with the boot disc...this is the first instance I've heard of that happening with the newest version of swap magic. That's...very odd.
Speaking of 2D games...I just got KOF XI and it's really excellent. SNK's best home port by far. The usual character graphic options, VERY little loading time, no controller issues, added music, added artwork and arrange mode is great.
