Bug#304267: RC3 netinst fails at boot on ia64

Package: installation-reports
Version: RC3 from http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/sarge_d-i/ia64/rc3/sarge-ia64-netinst.iso

The initial bootloader works and gives me a menu listing kernels. I've
tried 2.6 (VGA), 2.4 (VGA) and 2.6 (9600 serial). All grab the kernel
and initrd. Once the kernel gets to

ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 52
GSI 56 (level, low) -> CPU 1 (0x0300) vector 53
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:0f.0[A] -> GSI 56 (level, low) -> IRQ 53
GSI 57 (level, low) -> CPU 0 (0x0000) vector 54
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:0f.0[A] -> GSI 57 (level, low) -> IRQ 54
GSI 55 (level, low) -> CPU 1 (0x0300) vector 55
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 55 (level, low) -> IRQ 55
perfmon: version 2.0 IRQ 238
perfmon: Itanium PMU detected, 14 PMCs, 18 PMDs, 4 counters (32 bits)

in all cases it stops dead and will not respond any further. It sounds
like the hardware is resetting at this point - the IDE floppy and the
CD drive both make a churning noise similar to that at initial POST,
and the VGA display blanks.

An old woody install CD boots just fine on the same hardware. The
machine in question used to be caballero - an HP workstation i2000, 2
800 MHz CPUs and 2GB of RAM.

Let me know if/how I can help with debugging this.
