Bug#544745: debian-installer fails for squeeze/lenny on epia-ex motherboard

Package: debian-installer
Version: Daily build #3 for i386 02-Sep-2009 13:39 netinst ISO

I am trying to install Debian Squeeze on an Via miniitx motherboard - EPIA-EX 15000G (http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/embedded/ProductDetail.jsp?id=450) - using the expert install. When it boots the kernel it gets as far as:

[  5.037312] usbhid : v2.6:USB HID core driver

then hangs for a couple of minutes and then comes up with:

[  63.884022] hda : lost interrupt

The hard drive light is constantly on and after another couple of minutes the PC locks up completely.

The installed hard drive is an IDE and the DVD drive is an IDE slim drive with a slim IDE ATAPI to SATA adapter. The kernel seems to pick up both drives as hd drives rather than sd.

I have had no problem with Debian Etch or Fedora Core 8 (which the PC is currently running).
