The installation image’s root is mounted by label.  So if you happen to
have a different partition with the label ‘gnu-disk-image’, then it may
end up mounting the wrong partition.  That’s what’s happening here,

If so, the solution would be to change the label of your own partition
to avoid the name clash.

Ideally we would mount by UUID but I think that was impractical when I
looked at it.
