Bug#417871: debian-installer: On a system without ide disks and floppy, d-i takes forever in disk discovery.
On an x86 system (actually two different boards, and older athlon 1.2Ghz based
via board, and a newer tyan nforce based opteron board, when there are no ide
disks (except the cdrom drive), nor floppy driver connected, but only scsi or
sata disks, the disk discovery phase takes forever (like a couple of minutes
in the worst case).
