    What does the first 512 bytes of the disk show (od -Ax -tx1 /dev/)?
    Maybe there is still "0xaa55" on the disk at 0x1fe and the kernel
    thinks it is a DOS partition?

    Hmm, this is sda11, so you would need both a primary and extended
    partition table to get that. What does /proc/partitions show?
