Which driver do you see loaded?
I think your system needs cmd64x IDE driver which, unfortunately, is
missing from the d-i's initrd. There is now a bug filed for it
(http://bugs.debian.org/610906), and we'll try to make sure that it is
fixed for the first point release (it's too late for squeeze's
Unfortunately, I can't offer much in terms of workaround at this
point. If you can set up netbooting for your machine, you should be
able to install this way as this will not require accessing the
CD-ROM to retrieve udebs, they will be downloaded off the network, and
udebs should contain theh pata_cmd64x driver that you need.
