it seems to me that this is where the Ubuntu-rescue-remix.  7.10
announced some time ago by Andrew Zajac <arzajac at> and
available on could be useful. 

There are on it tools capable of discovering (even working on the disk
image you produced) which partition scheme is used (and recover data on
it, too).

CAVEAT: I'm not the author of the above mentioned CD, neither have I
used it (even if I downloaded it a take a look at what was there)
