Well, that's not what I read from the report. It might be that it's a
motherboard problem, but it also might be that after booting and
starting d-i, d-i says that the CD is not found. This has happened to
me in the past, and I think it's possible for this to be happening
with some new piece of hardware.
I'd definitely ask the submitter for more information before closing
the bug disregarding a possible software problem.
