In that case it sounds like there may be a regression in a recent version of initramfs-tools as that should take care of loading the right modules if all_generic_ide is set. However, I don't see anything suspicious in its changelog. Please report an RC bug against that package so it can be further analyzed. It would be good if, before you file the bug report, you can retest with RC1 (using a netinst or full CD) to verify that really works correctly and to test that you can also reproduce the error with a daily built netinst image. Check which version of initramfs-tools is used in both cases. Be aware that we now have the "automatic base system upgrade" feature in pkgsel which may install the latest version of initramfs-tools and thus rebuild the initrd using the latest version even if you test with RC1. To avoid that, you can do the install in expert mode and just skip pkgsel (the "install additional software" step). Cheers, FJP
