I think the device name should be ok, but apparently your partition layout is
not. I haven't looked at your script, but probably you are starting the first
partition right at first few bytes instead of leaving sufficient space for an
MBR+GRUB to fit in, or even an extra partition if you use a GPT disk label.


PS.: Arguably setup-storage isn't perfect, but at least it knows about all those
issues. You may want to look at its code or simply *use* it!?
