Hi there,

I am a happy Debian AMD64 user from the last few months but now I run
into a problem...

I tried to install a brand new system with the latest installer image,
but it failed during SATA detection... Sata_nv module said: "sata is
too slow to responde". :( I googled a little and found out that this
is a kind of bug in the pre 2.6.10 kernels, and it had been resolved
in 2.6.10, but the latest amd64 installer uses kernel<2.6.10. :( So I

Sure about that?

need a 2.6.10 on the installer CD. Is there any way to make my own
installer disk/image using my own kernel image? Can I changed only the
kernel on the installer? A static kernel without modules is okay for

You have to build the module udebs and then a set of D-I images. There
is no just changing in there I'm afraid.

Fortunately I workarounded the problem :-D It's not the simplest process... but works.

1. I've just build a DFS (Debian From Scratch) boot CD with a 2.6.10 (all things compiled into the kernel, no modules at all). 2. Then copied the initrd.gz from the Debian Installer disc to the DFS disc. 3. I booted with DFS disc but using Debian's initrd.gz and Debian's booting parameters.
4. Kernel loaded and installer started successfully :-)
5. I just had to change DFS disc to Debian Installer disc to continue installing process.

So it works.
