I have a theory why this might have been broken, but I'm not exactly
sure. Anyway, I just generated a new image and have done a successful
installation with it. You can download it from

I think this is no longer needed now. Can you please test the new
image and let me know if it works without this append parameter? I
don't have a monitor here so I can only test serial console installs.

No, only ext2/ext3 for now. In theory, I could put other modules on
the image but even then your root partition would have to be ext2/ext3
so you can boot from it.
