Debian installer will normally install a tool that will generate the
uImage/uInitrd files from vmlinuz/initrd.img.  This didn't happen in
your case since something went wrong with the installer.  And no, you
cannot use the files for the installer to boot your regular system.

I suggest you perform another installation, possibility choosing
another mirror.  If you still get the same errors, please send
/var/log/syslog from the installer.
