It simply tries  to  boot from the  CD-ROM  reader (I can see  the led
flashing), but it  fails and skip to  the next device (hard  disk), as
for example an audio CD disk with no boot sector was inserted.

No messages.

As said, I don't even get to that point.

  FP> Any BIOS options you can try changing?

I'm not  sure, replacing the SATA  CD-ROM with  a  IDE one,  makes d-i
happy and boot painlessly. I don't know  exactly if there something to
set in the BIOS.. has somebody some experience here?

I did test it, but I'll check 3.1r4 out.

  FP> Does an Etch RC1 installation CD boot correctly?

No, it fails as well, same behaviour.
