No more SATA hangs! yay.

everything went smoothly till the base-install ran. Part or most of the way
through the base install (after tasksel was configured), the d-i step menu
popped up (the progress dialog from the base system install is visible
behind the menu). If I select "Install GRUB boot loader" or "Install base
system" it goes to the "install base system" step and complains that the
target is unclean. proceeding from there despite the warning results in a
"base system install error" because /target/usr/bin/awk already exists.
