      I think I found it. The wiki leaves out the instruction to do a "shutdown -r
      now" after writing the partition table. I then needed to reload the
      EM_mode_binaries and continue with the formatting.

      I compiled some info, i collected on the wiki and forum about that old
      problem (and TLG did an update too, so it's weird you still have the
      problem ) here :
