First of all, why does every reply from you break the thread? It makes
it very hard to follow the conversation and you are less likely to
receive much help.

Sorry, I still don't understand what "the systems setting screen" is
supposed to be and what you are doing there. In your original posting
you had said that "This is the original fstab writeout as of a fresh
installation." It seems to me that this is not the case: for one the
mount options that you had pasted did not look like they were created by
the installer, and you seem to make changes in these "system settings"

The loop option has nothing to do with what you try to achieve. It is
just there to create loop devices
