Was this disk originally created by a current version of parted? The
assertion isn't actually a bug unless it was parted creating it. It's
telling us that the logical partitions haven't been created with enough
space in front of them (2 sectors) for the extended boot record.

eg. Partition 5 there should start at 976562177
