Such has been reported before. Sadly I don't known what it caused.
(So I even don't known any workarounds for it ... )

Thank you for your feedback.
I have neither a definitive answer for the remaining issues.
For the disk renaming issue, I hope for some follow-up on this bugreport
or on the mailinglist debian-boot.
For the BIOS Bug, I would go for a BIOS upgrade.
For the 'PCI: Not using MMCONFIG', I did a short websearch, what I
understood from it, is it related to the BIOS bug.
