Reboot used still active old MBR in hda1, not hda2 as seleted in
GRUB configuration dialog: hda0,1. After enabling hda2 as active,
Debian base config came up fine.

Wish: Chain loading old MBR in hda1 would have been nice.

German translation is almost perfect. Good job!

Looks like your bug is fixed in current installer. Would be good if
you could see if it still reproducable and reopen the bug in case.

Thanks in advance,

p.s.: You can get a new installer image in
