I'm happy to report that this problem is now solved.

Apparently something was wrong with the way the partition(s) were set
up/written on the flash module. Therefor, something (probably) went wrong
the first time I tried to write the image to the module. It did not seem
to end up on the first, only and bootable partition.

After a new try, with help from cfdisk (in Ubuntu) to clear the partition
table, everything now works fine.

Thank you all for the tips and help that was posted.
