That question is read by me as

I have a idea that might brings us one step further:
What I understood from previous postings, is that debian-installer
does boot with the card plugged in. So one should be able to get
the PCI ID of the odd card.
* Boot the debian-installer
* Select language
* Select keyboard
* Press ALT-F2 to get to the next virtual console
* Press enter, to get open a shell
* Enter the command `lspci`
- find out in which slot the bogus card is
- for now assume the PCI slot number is 02:20:0e.0
* Enter the command `lspci -ns 02:20:0e.0`
- you get output like
02:20:0e.0 0101: 1044:c05g
- where '1044:c05g' is the PCI ID
* Write down the PCI ID
* Abort the installer by the command `halt`
Use the PCI ID during the search for more information about the special
card you have bought. I guess there is a kernel boot parameter for this
card. Booting with that extra parameter should get you a bootable computer.
