Can you please elaborate on what you mean by "crashed"?  Was this a
kernel panic with backtrace, a failure to mount the rootfs, ... ?

Which image gave you this error?  This is quite different from the
problems others are reporting with the images at
<http://people.debian.org/~vorlon/fixed-alpha-kernels/>, but if you're
using something from
<http://people.debian.org/~vorlon/d-i/images/daily/>, then this looks 
like the bug that the fixed-alpha-kernels were built to address.
