Detecting of Windows is supported, but due to a little bug it doesn't
work in beta4 - the ntfs module is not loaded and so it doesn't see
what's on the disk.  Can you try to load the ntfs module by hand and
check if it finds your Windows installation?  It should.

It should install the right kernel.  Can you please send /proc/cpuinfo
from those two machines.

No need, we can just use this one.

Thanks for testing d-i!
