invalid arch-independent ELF magic

Bug Description

This could actually be an issue with usb-creator or with the image itself.

After running usb-creator on a USB key formatted with a GPT partition table (to be able to boot it via UEFI), grub starts to a command line, has very few modules loaded and is unable to load new modules; returning with the error message "error: invalid arch-independent ELF magic." when trying to add most modules (other simply fail to find symbols).

It's to be noted that usb-creator crashed somewhere during or immediately after running grub; see bug 1057013.

Works properly when burning to a CD/DVD.

Most likely just because usb-creator isn't ready to handle this kind of setup, I've reassigned to usb-creator -- feel free to close as appropriate.
