I currently try to talk Debian out of nesting partitions,

If the discussion is archived somewhere, a pointer to it would be nice to have.

My proposal is rather to avoid GPT and to use the EFI option to
partition by a conventional MBR partition table.
That would also make possible to have the first partition mountable.

Yes, this would eliminate the conflict of requirements put on the MBR partitions by Tiano Core and DG965SS.

The price would be (currently):
- The EFI system partion has to exist twice. Once as file in the
   ISO to be usable as El Torito boot image. Once after the ISO,
   so that ISO partition and EFI system partition do not overlap.
- The EFI system partition would not be covered by the ISO size.
   Some scripts which checkread after copying might only read
   that amount of bytes and report mismatch.

Have a nice day :)

Thanks for a constructive message :)

As for your other message, about reproduction of my iso, I am writing the reply right now.
