Files in /dev can be made as needed. Maybe your "udev" doesn't.

Try "cat /proc/partitions" to see what ought to exist. These are the 
partitions the kernel has noticed, whether or not they actually
appear in /dev.

You probably want a better solution, but missing /dev files can be
created with "mknod".
