Bug#572241: debian-installer: device nodes for partitions gone away during install

Package: debian-installer
Version: squeeze 20100211
Severity: important

* installing squeeze via netboot CD mini.iso (ISO file timestamp 2010.02.11), expert mode

* after menu item 'detect disk' kernel detects disks and I see /dev/sda, /dev/sda1 etc in shell

* after pressing 'partition disks' I only see device nodes for /dev/sda and no partitions (/dev/sda1) (even though fdisk says partitions exist)

* after syncing partitions in fdisk by re-writing partition table, the device nodes for this disk reappear

This would all be problem with simple workaround (rewriting partitions) but the problem is that after installation and restart, the partitions are gone again (so this might be problem in initrd / kernel?) and system can't boot

Disks: ST31000528AS
Controller: SATA, Intel 82801IR/IO/IH (ICH9R/DO/DH), AHCI
