Dennis, Olaf...could you try changing the "partman-auto/disk" entry to
"partman-auto/select_disk" in your preseed files and see if that fixes

After adding that line "d-i partman-auto/select_disk select SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) - 8.6 GB VMware, VMware Virtual S" the installer gets stuck at:
Starting up the partitioner
Please wait...

The same happens with the line "d-i partman-auto/select_disk select /dev/discs/disc0/disc"

CPU usage appears to be 100%, so I suspect an infinite loop.

Could you change to VT2 (alt + f2) while its in this loop, run "ps ax" and see what processes are running? The one taking 100% CPU should be towards the end of the list.
