Bug Description

Currently, there is no option to create a u-boot partition required for omap/omap4 systems that boot from SD. If left alone, no fat partition will be created on /dev/mmcblk0 as 1st partition, which is required to make the system bootable. This should be 30M at an absolute minimum. No more than 70M is required.

This can be worked around by using the boot.img-[fb|serial].gz image file and selecting "Guided - use available free space" when prompted for partition info.
