The installer does check the exit status of these stamp commands to
ensure they finish properly.

We can easily test if boot0 is the problem though. If you do the install
again, go to disk setup -> advanced and use the full disk, try checking
"GPT" mode this time. It wont do the boot0 install, but instead will do
a pmbr setup which may work better on your system.
