I've never tried root=/dev/ram, I always use /dev/initrd.  Maybe they
are the same, but it might worth trying the other.

Are you sure you have initrd support in the kernel?  I realize this the
d-i kernel so maybe someone else can answer this question.

To get all of the boot messages, you can pass console=/dev/[a serial
port] and hook up a 2nd computer to view the console messages.  That is
if you have a 2nd computer.
