Then the Language selection menu is displayed - there seems to be a

cursor or scrollbar are visible, so selection of a language etc. may
be very difficult.
But at this point I had another problem: the machine doesn't seem to
respond to the keyboard anymore, RETURN won't make the installer
proceed and even stop-a doesn't work any more (should get me into
Thanks a lot for a detailed installation report. Reports of d-i and kernel
testing on newer hardware are particularly valuable.
A couple of follow-up questions:
1. What happens if you add a debconf/framebuffer=false boot argument? Does
it affect the problem in any way?
2. Is it a USB keyboard?
