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.

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

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.

No, it fails as well, same behaviour.
