Bug#414018: debian-installer: USB install does not consider mini.iso a Debian ISO
Version: snapshot 2007-03-08
when trying to installer from an USB stick as boot medium, the system
booting from the USB stick does not consider mini.iso downloaded from
The log says
iso-scan: Found ISO ./mini.iso on /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part4
iso-scan: Not a Debian ISO
The mini.iso seems to be a functional installer though, as I can
install fine when booting a vmware virtual machine from this ISO.
Using the business card ISO, the USB install succeeds.
Either, the installer needs to be fixed to consider mini.iso a valid
Debian ISO, or the docs need to be fixed, saying explicitly that
mini.iso is not suitable - it is the .iso image that is stored the
closest to the USB boot stuff.
