Bug#385768: installation-reports: Failed to reboot x86 SCSI system

Is this a USB DSL modem ? These things usually need some firmware crap
to be loaded and the installer currently doesn't support this for
them. IIRC, there's a dedicated package for these modems so that
mostly means that you should install the stuff after the general
system install.

What would help is as much as possible thigns from the boot messages.
