Package: installation-reports
Version: 5.04
Severity: grave

This bug report is for Debian 5.04 (i386, 32bit). It also applies to recent Ubuntu (10.0?, LTS Version).

Trying an installation with the downloaded CD everything works fine, until the detection of hard drives begins. A few seconds after this the hard drive led burns without flickering, NO hard drive sounds can be heard anymore and the machine completely freezes (no chance to skip to another console).

Using e.g. an Ubuntu live system, everything works perfectly fine, installing a recent Suse distribution also is no problem (11.2).

I used an alternate installation disk for Ubuntu 9.04 and replaced everything I thought having to do with partitioning with dummies (e.g. all partman binaries). As I already did the partitioning with the suse installation this was no problem. Suprisingly the installation continued without problem and the system after installation was ready to boot. But - as the partman was again part of the installation - everything having to do with hard drives (new partitions) or adding cd drives again froze the system.

Please give some advice which additional information you need. I will try to provide this as soon as possible.

Kind regards

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
  the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
  D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
  fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful

The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet. 

In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.

You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.

If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
against installation-reports.

Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
