Package: installation-reports

http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/daily/i386/current/ on
and the i386 netinst CD image with Debian base on
uname -a: could not get there!
Date: 9-Oct-04 till now (still trying)
Method: I booted from the CD and didn't need the network in phase 1.
could not get to phase 2

Machine: Toshiba Satellite A70
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 Mobile (with HyperThreading)
Memory: 512
Root Device: hda (hda1: WindowsXP, hda2: debian, hda3: swap)
Root Size/partition table: hda1: ~15GB, hda2: ~24GB, hda3: ~1GB
Output of lspci and lspci -n: no running system

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [ O]
Configure network HW:   [O ]
Config network:         [ O]
Detect CD:              [ O]
Load installer modules: [O ]
Detect hard drives:     [O ]
Partition hard drives:  [ O]
Create file systems:    [ O]
Mount partitions:       [ O]
Install base system:    [ O]
Install boot loader:    [ O]
Reboot:                 [ E]

Phase 1 goes well. After reboot, boot starts until the point where it says:
hda: IC***** (looks like harddrive model) HARD DISK drive
cannot handle kernel request ...
eip:*** (long list of register values)
Segmentation fault
<6>Journalled *** loaded
pivot_root: No such file or directory
/sbin/init: 426: cannot open dev/console: No such file
kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

using linux26 hangs the system upon reaching the first dialog in the
installer (the language selection). I had to use vga=771 at booting
from the installer CD or I have no display.
I tried to use the woody netinst CD image and it worked fine (kernel
2.2 though). But once I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.8-686-smp, the
system booted completely and presented a login prompt but was not
responding at all. Now I wasn't sure is it not responding or is the
keyboard not working! Honestly I could not tell as I didn't thing of
any way to tell!!!

(can provide more details if needed)
BTW, I managed to use debian-installer on Toshiba Satellite M30 but
with no other OS (only debian, no WinXP: hda1: debian, hda2: swap).

I have added a remark about this in the Installation Manual and we will 
keep it in mind for other users.

Thank you for informing us.

Closing this report as the problem is solved.
