The GPT is not valid because there is a non-"protective" MBR partition
table. The APM is valid, but should be of no interest for any firmware
that does not expect a HFS or HFS+ filesystem. (And there is no such
filesystem in the ISO image.)

Why then does parted complain about a block size discrepancy ?

But if only a few MB were copied (for what strange reason ever) there
remains the riddle why it booted and probably loaded the initrd.
Why does it fail when it looks for the ISO filesystem ?

Probably because the MBR and the boot files are located at the beginning of the image and were part of the data which were actually written.
