comment Is my CF card broken?
Got it to work now (see separate response). I should definitely have tried that earlier :). But thanks a lot for the help!

comment Is my CF card broken?
Ok, so I went ahead and got a new CF card since I don't have another reader available. I have the same problems with the new card, so it probably wasn't that. I also tried doing the installation from a Live CD instead of virtualbox but that didn't help either. So at this point it looks like it really is an issue with the card reader. I'm not really sure what to do about it now though, since I don't want to go and blindly buy new readers until maybe one works.

Yes that's right, I don't care about the data on the drive. I ran badblocks and got this: "Pass completed, 2949360 bad blocks found. (104/1008785/1940471 errors)". I am guessing that means I should get a new card, right?
