Why do I need to create a loop device for the first partition?

grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/usb /dev/loop0
This will give a GRUB error, saying that there's no matching device for /dev/loop0 in my After removing the and by letting GRUB create it automatically, I get "Invalid device `/dev/loop0'."

Don't forget to apply fezie's bugfix for root-directory
