With that fstab entry, you should have gotten the same error in F10.
You need the user or users option to let a normal user mount an
entry in fstab. What it looks like you are getting as a mount point
is the uuid of the partation on the SD card. I suspect that the
fstab entry was not used in F10, and HAL was using /media/disk as
the mount point. Now, if you label the partition, you should get a
mount point of /media/<label>.
