Your patch make sens to me. I don't think it can break anything, and it's
clearer than the previous error message. I don't know if a single message
with three options could be better, because the available options won't
easily map to the needed { abort, continue with driver sector size, 
continue with Parted sector size }

But anyway in the current code state, i'm afraid that non 512 bytes by
sector HD just won't work with parted in most cases.
