Thanks for explanation. I've noticed that choosing the module from
list and loading it without autodetection works only for the net but
not for the cdrom install. Giving full path to the module fails too
(for the default boot arg).

The listing in Load installer modules is not paged properly or the
paging style is confusing. I could not list entries 1-6. I tried to
select them by number or navigate back and forth by letters n,b.
One line is skipped if Enter is pressed.

The real problem is when it comes to Install the base system (default)
nothing is installed - pressing Enter presents the same menu again. I
believe all previous items (language/net hardware/keyboard/DHCP
config/choosing mirror/CDROM/installer modules/partitioning/mounting
filesystems) were completed. Any idea how to proceed?
