Bug#468357: win32-loader: installer won't load after rebooting

Package: win32-loader
Severity: normal


I was trying to install Debian from the Windows XP Home operating
system of a Dell Dimension DIMC521 desktop.

CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ 2.00GHz
Memory: 512MB
Graphic card: on board NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE
Disk: 80GB with WinXP Home preloaded
Installer loader: http://goodbye-microsoft.com/

Problem: Loader ran well in Windows. After rebooting, the entry
labeled "Debian Installer" was shown in the start up menu, which
should be correct. After I selected that entry, a screen appeared
with the following words:

Welcome to GRUB!
hd0,2 [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x16f3cf]

And it hung after a few seconds showing a black screen. I could
reboot back to Windows with no problem.
