Looks like the Etch kernel does not correctly support your hardware. Suggest you either try the Lenny installer , or the /unofficial/ installer from Kenshi Muto for Etch  that has a more recent kernel. You may also be able to work around the issue by passing some kernel parameters (e.g. acpi=noirq), but using a more recent kernel is probably a better option. Cheers, FJP P.S. Next time, please file a full installation report .  http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/  http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/  http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/report-template
