Re: debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso fails reboot


I am not sure, but maybe your problem is due to the transition
from the Etch Beta1 to the Etch Beta2 release of Debian Installer.
See http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/News/2006/20060207

Citation: "The changes to the Debian archive are known to break most of
the installation media from Etch Beta1. ... The only images that should
still be usable are the full installation CDs."
