The situation is a mess.
Noone either actually understands what is actually needed or can produce a proper, "universal" approach.
User wean_irdeh is the only one that:
1) reported success with kpart/losetup with more that one specific distro
2) actually posted some hopefully complete but still essentially cryptic set of instructions
BUT he never posted the specifics on debian:
All the others either reported success on a specific distro only or did not provide the EXACT details needed.
What you should IMHO try doing:
1) repicate the success of wean_irdeh with ARCHLINUX:
following the steps exactly
2) see if the same approach works on debian (possibly some changes are needed )
I am suggesting you to re-run the Archlinux experiment because (to me at least) not all the steps in the above post by wean_irdeh are completely clear, so - until the EXACT SAME approach has not been tested with a "known-to-be-working" distro there is no way to know if the approach is understandable and repeatable, or - if you prefer - if you introduce TWO changes in the replicaton of an experiment, if it fails you will never know which of the two changes is the cause of the issue.

Thanks for the swift reply, yeah from what i've read no set of instructions are actually fully complete, it's all hit and miss.
I'll give arch a go over the next few days and go from there, i'll also do my best to supply a full set of instructions if i get debian or any other distro working but right now i'm just using the vhd with a portable vm when i actually need it.
