This is a known issue. Unfortunately we don't have a solution for it yet.

You should be able to enter these characters using some kind of function 
key combination. If Intel based MacBooks use Macintosh keyboard layouts 
this problem is expected as we currently don't support USB-MAC keymaps 
for i386.

You can select a USB-MAC keymap after the installation using
   dpkg-reconfigure console-data

Reassigning this report to kbd-chooser so this can be fixed in the future.
