It looks like this is an issue with busybox mount. I found this thread which 
has a similar report:

I can easily reproduce this from a debug shell:
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/ -t ext3 -o relatime
mount: Mounting /dev/hda1 on /mnt/ failed: Invalid argument
# dmesg
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "realtime" or missing value

It's not limited to just ext3. If I try without the -t option, dmesg shows:
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "realtime" or missing value
jfs: Unrecognized mount option "realtime" or missing value
ReiserFS: hda1: warning: unknown mount option "realtime"
XFS: unknown mount option [realtime]

relatime option and then selected "Finish partitioning" again. After that 
partitions were created correctly and the installation continued with base
