Preseeded automatic installation (where debconf/priority is preseeded to "critical") fails to install a kernel. After installation completes and the prompt to remove the disk for reboot appears, ls /target/boot shows only a grub/ directory -- no initrd.img-* or vmlinuz-* files are present, and the file /target/boot/grub/menu.lst is void of menu entries (no title, root, kernel, or initrd lines).

Performing the same preseed install with the same preseed values except debconf/priority set to "medium" results in the installer specifically asking for a kernel and the chosen kernel being installed. A reboot then works as expected.
