I don't know. Either the ext2 file system implementation that comes
with GNU Mach does only support block sizes of 1024 bytes or there's
a bug in the implementation.
I tried to install the Hurd yesterday and got the same error message
like you. I figured out that the mke2fs version that comes with
potato by default uses a block size of 4096 bytes instead of 1024
bytes if the size of a partition exceeds a certain size (800 MB?).
When I created the file system with a block size of 1024 instead of
4096 bytes, I was able to boot the Hurd.
You can find out the block size of a ext2 file system with dumpe2fs.
