Package: installation-reports

Boot method: network
Image version: http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/etch/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/debian-installer/i386/initrd.gz

Date: Mo Apr  7 15:11:27 CEST 2008

Machine: VMware with IDE(0,0)-harddisk
Memory:   256m
Partitions: empty

Output of lspci -nn and lspci -vnn:

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot:           [o]
Detect network card:    [o]
Configure network:      [o]
Detect CD:              [ ]

The IDE hard disk is not detected. The installer then wants to create partitions on the floppy.

This failure happens on a virtual machine and on real hardware also.

Newer versions of kernel and initrd don't work with debian-40r3-i386-DVD-1.iso (module version mismatch).

What can i do?
