I'm not using -BI, but I am using -I in a version of diskprep. Are you
sure you don't have any slices (or partitions inside those slices) open?
I remember getting all sorts of weird errors when I forgot about that
while developing my new scripts.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
