diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/disk0s1
I then rebooted with -f and ran the script without problem.

Hopefully this helps!
Ran into the same issue as well. This resolved it.

I am also getting 'applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)' after having installed using v7.9; and fully patched from Apple site. System will boot fine from the v7.9 Boot CD, but cannot get the Installe.dmg to run!!

System is using a 32Gb SSD configured with 1 GUID Partitian.

Tried running Installer.dmg from CD, HD and Desktop and doing a Disk Utility Permision Repair but still get: applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)

Then I tried the Shell command options that other posts have had success with. The following was my experience:

diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/disk0s1

But got the following:
Could not unmount disk for making it bootable
Error with erase: Could not unmount disk (-10000)
[ + 0%..10%..20%..30%..40%..50%..60%..70%..80%..90%..1 00% ]
Finished erase on disk disk0s1

Tried the installer again and same result: applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)

Then Tried:

# fsck_hfs -f -y /dev/disk0s1

** /dev/rdisk0s1

[Not Sure what this response means!]

# mkdir /Volumes/EFI

mkdir: /Volumes/EFI: File exists

[Assumed this response was OK]

# mount_hfs /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI

mount_hfs: Invalid argument

[Not clear why this did not work? or what it means!!]

# umount /Volumes/EFI

umount: /Volumes/EFI: not currently mounted

I am suspicious that there may be an issue with running mount_efs on my system, but having not changed anything since the full install, and do not have enough expereince with MAC's I am struggeling to troubleshoot further, so cannot guess what is going on.

Now I am at a dead end! Any help would be MOST welcomed.
