You can solve this by adding the module in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and regenerating the initrd (using 'update-initramfs'). I'm making a change in the installer that will make the installer take care of this for future installs. Currently the scsi modules for hp-bus devices are added in /etc/modules, but that is too late for booting if an initrd is being used. Cheers, FJP P.S. Please don't use a "root" mail address when sending mails to Debian. They are filtered out and never reach the mailing lists. I only saw your report by accident.
