Bug#509299: installation: Error in Windows-Based Debial Installation

OK.  I will assume you start with an empty (unpartitioned) hard drive.  I added the XP stuff to completely duplicate my HD.  I don't think it is necessary to duplicate the problem.  
1) Use a Linux live CD or repair disk to create:
   a) Partition 1 (boot volume) --> primary - 750 to 1024 MB 
      Type = 7 (HPFS/NTFS)
      Make it the active partition 
   b) Partition 2 --> Extended - Rest of the HD
   c) Logical drive 5 (For Vista) --> 10 to 20 GB
      Type = 7 (HPFS/NTFS)
   d) Logical Drive 6 (optional for XP) 
      Type = 7 (HPFS/NTFS)
2) (Optional) Install XP into logical drive 6
3) Install Vista into logical drive 5
That should do it.  In my scenario I have:
   Part/LogVol    Type      O/S
       1          NTFS      boot volume
       2          Extended
       5          Linux     /boot
       6          Linux     /
       7          Linux     Linux logical volume
       8          NTFS      Vista    
       9          NTFS      Data    
      10          NTFS      XP   
         Free space

I think I'll have to try reproduce this bug.  Can you give me instructions on
how to setup an environment that has the same problem?
