Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and tested that change you
suggested. Unfortunately, I'm still getting the same results:
FAI: setup harddisks V0.7fai
sfdisk: ERROR: sector 0 does not have an msdos signature
parsing config file: /fai/disk_config/SD_9_36GB
ERROR: could not read device /dev/sda
Error: /tmp/disk_var.sh not found.
Any other suggestions?
