You can force sfdisk to use a certain geometry by defining a varaible
in .../class/*.var.

sfdisk="--force -C 7752 -H 240 -S 63"

I need this when installaing a dual boot machine, where Wind$$$$ did
the partitioning and sfdisk always think the partition was made for a
different geometry that linux detects. It's works well for me.

So try to determine which geometry you must force for your disks.

P.S: Please do not attach the complete log file, if we only need a
certain part of it.
