I think you got helped already at raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=58344&p=438387 :) I don't have a raspberry to try it out, sorry. You can also try asking at raspberrypi.stackexchange.com // Btw, I've read that armhf for raspberry pi will not work: wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi -- Debian recommends armel –  medigeek Oct 16 '13 at 13:33
You can also try other images/linux distributions, like arch linux: archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv6/… –  medigeek Oct 16 '13 at 13:37
