Did the fix for bug #32122 make it into the Seawolf distro? I downloaded 
the boot.img file and I see get an fdisk warning message "Partition 1 
does not end on cylinder boundary:" treated as a fatal error and the disk 
is not available to install on. Can you post some updated image files so 
I can install? Thanks.

Try doing the installation with 'expert' on the boot comand line. In expert mode
we ignore this error (note that if you try to delete or create new partitions
with a partition table in this state you may have undesirable affects, which is
why the warning is there to begin with).
