I have just tried to reproduce this on my own amd64 system, but cannot.
I have tried both with just the clock-setup line and with your original
preseed file (but without the partman lines), but in both cases the
preconfiguration file is loaded correctly.
Reassigning to preseed as it is doubtful the issue is in clock-setup
itself and it will be easier to find under preseed.
There was someone else who reported the same issue on IRC, but if we
cannot reproduce it, we will need you (or someone else) who can to debug
To try to trace this I would suggest the following:
- boot with 'install url=http://<full-url-to-preseed-file>'
- at the first dialog, switch to VT2
- edit /var/lib/dpkg/info/network-preseed.postinst and add a 'set -x'
- continue the installation untill the problem occurs
- find some way to get the syslog off the system
The last may be tricky. You could try booting with BOOT_DEBUG=3 and
editing /etc/inittab so the debian-installer program does not
If you add modules=openssh-client-udeb at the boot prompt, you will be
able to run scp from a shell.
