You're not asked by default what mode you want to do, so there are two
1) just run the installation until base install fails to start the
kernel. The error will put you into expert mode. Then run base
install again and you can choose the kernel.
2) at some point during the install (e.g. when partman has started),
choose the "go back" option to go to the menu. In the menu you'll see
an entry like "Change debconf priority" (it's towards the end) - do
that and choose "high" and then continue.
