Hmm, unfortunately same error...

I've been working with Andre Florath on a private thread. He asked me to 
drop dib into a debug shell and output the contents of:

/sbin/fdisk -l /dev/loop0p1

That returned some nastysauce:

root at brix-1:/# echo $IMAGE_BLOCK_DEVICE
root at brix-1:/# /sbin/fdisk -l /dev/loop0p1

Disk /dev/loop0p1: 1743 MB, 1743584768 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 211 cylinders, total 3405439 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/loop0p1 doesn't contain a valid partition table

The quest continues... :)
