In you kernel config, make sure you have CONFIG_MSDOS_PARTITION set
(file systems->partition types). But I suspect you already have this
as the partitions get recognized.

Try if any of these work:
mount -v -t vfat /dev/sda1 /fw/
mount -v -t fat /dev/sda1 /fw/
mount -v /dev/sda1 /fw/
If that does not work, run fdisk /dev/sda and see if that works okay.
