I have tried both singly and all different combinations of the two. The
fdisc installer will write to the drives partition map but it will not read
it at boot.

Again, at the initial boot into the installer there is a line saying that
the map partition can not be read. Same at the end after the install. It
will allow me to change the partitions in fdisc and assign root and swap and
write the packages to disc but the map is not read at boot.

Pulling my hair out over this one.
