I am not sure here, but maybe the bootloader needs SD card to be properly 
unmounted. I couldnt boot several times and IIRC after fsck i could boot 
again. But i am not sure here.

Btw running system from SD card never worked reliably for me. Sooner or later 
i ended up with somehow corrupted filesystem. I think that good option could be 
base system on readonly filesystem + union with RW system.
