Build logs from new (kiwi) and old (kiwi.old)

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:

I recently upgrade my kiwi installation but I unfortunately don't know what
version I had previously from the Virtualization:Appliances repo
For safety sake, I bumped the version number (0.7.0->0.7.1) in my config.xml
and changed the name and after performing a new build I'm getting an image that
won't boot from USB. The kiwi build process completes successfully but when
loaded onto a USB stick results in GRUB giving an Error 21. If I reload the
old image on the USB stick it loads fine and the system can boot again. It
looks like the build process has changed from using fdisk to parted and I'm
guessing other pieces have changed as well. When I compare the old image
(built within the last 60 days) to the new one with the file command I see:

zenboot.x86_64-0.7.0.raw: x86 boot sector; GRand Unified Bootloader, stage1
version 0x3, stage2 address 0x2000, stage2 segment 0x200, GRUB version 0.97;
partition 1: ID=0x83, active, starthead 1, startsector 63, 1654632 sectors

zenboot.x86_64-0.7.1.raw: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x83, active,
starthead 1, startsector 63, 1654632 sectors

I currently have the following kiwi packages installed although I unfortunately
don't have the older (< 2 month old) version numbers.
