Quoting Daniel Pocock (firstname.lastname@example.org): > My explanation wasn't thorough enough: > > - I saw the prompt to insert the floppy or USB disk > > - I used the iDRAC (Dell's iLO solution) to enable the virtual floppy > > - I pressed the OK button in d-i, telling it to search for the removable > media > > - d-i told me no removable media found (I can't remember the exact > message I saw) I would suggest yo to try enabling the virtual floppy earlier in the process. The sequence you describe means that d-i would have to rescan available devices before looking around and try mounting the ones that are present. however, I'm unsure (and can't check right now) if such a scan is done between the moment you're prompted and the failure message. So, imho, you'd get better chances if you enable your virtual floppy as early as possible.
