Hello Phill,

Seems you got an interresting challange with your hardware and d-i.

It does intrige me.
I would love to debug it, but I lack the hardware (and the time :-)

Thing where I would start, is adding several
 set +x
statements in the udev scripts. You don't need to rebuild the installer
for that. Switch to the VT2 console and open there a shell.
Change the proper directory[1] and modify the scripts with the editor 'nano'
The extra output will also be in the syslog file.

I'm looking forward to your follow-up.
Just use the reply-bottom, so it will go the Bugreport and, for this BR,
to debian-boot mailinglist.

[1] Yes, I should have done some research and provide the actual dirname.
