Bug#230438: FWD: Install Report - Failed CD-ROM install

I'd like to just say that I have also experienced this bug. I am trying to 
install on a Compaq ProLiant 1600R, and it has a SmartArray 221 controller.

All the hardware seems to be correctly detected, and all goes well up to the 
"Configure and Mount Partitions" step. I just keep getting kicked back to 
that step, which doesn't seem to do anything.

I can work around by allowing the installer to automatically partition, but 
that wipes out the Compaq configuration partition, which is not my 

I was eventually able to install the base system by manually 
mounting /dev/ida/disc0/part1 on /target, but encountered lilo/grub problems, 
so I reverted to installing from old woody compact floppy discs. :-(
