Hi Jack,
I did make /dev/hda writable and got the lack of information.
Also If you want to find the current problem you don't need a Bluebottle
Partition.Show should also tell me about other partitions on my current
disk if I mount it.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

I'm afraid I don't have a Bluebottle partition on the same box as
Linux, but it should work.  I'll try to fish up another drive and see
what I can cobble together.

I think you've caught the problem, though.  Just as you had to make
/dev/hda1 world-readable, you may need to do the same to /dev/hda.

Or, try using sudo, if you have it installed and configured.

If it's some locking/blocking problem accessing that device directly,
I suspect you'll see something in kern.log or dmesg.
