It looks to me like installboot puts all of xxboot starting at sector
1, and only fills in magic (keeping the actual disklabel) in sector 0.

Can you zero the disk (image) again and provide hexdumps of the first two
sectors for the working and the not working state?

I didn't have old enough disklabel sources around, will check there.
