Bug Description

After successfully running through the netinstall on a beaglexm, the system is left in an unbootable state. No boot.script is created in /boot, and the boot.scr on the SD is not changed from the netinstall image. The kernel and initrd are updated on SD though.

This can be worked around by manually modifying the boot.scr from the netboot image to include ROOT=/dev/sda1 (or what ever boot medium was chosen.

flash-kernel-installer bug, forgot to add the necessary code to make a boot.script for OMAP3 (it tries to use NAND flash from when that was the standard for Beagle for Lucid)
