Comments/Problems:

Booted installation process from hard disk.

<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

Resulting system will not boot!
"ACPI:Expecting a [Reference] package element, found type 0

was the last thing to display on console before hang.

Tried adding acpi=off to boot parameters.
This resulted in hang with complaint about drivers fan.ko, processor.ko and thermal.ko
not existing. Still hangs.

This smalt entry describes the hardware. It was made with opensuse
on the same hardware, since the installed debian system will not boot.
