Bug#282670: Package: installation-reports

I think this might be a problem that at root is due to some CDROM drives
not working well with DMA access to them turned on in the kernel. It seems
to happen with Dells quite a bit.

Have a look at bug 265636, are the symptoms similar?

It would also help to send (to 282670@bugs.debian.org) the logfiles from
your install (there is a save logs step in main installer menu) and the
output of (lspci -n; lspci)|sort
