Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [O]
Load installer modules: [O]

Partition hard drives:  [O]
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [E]

Reboot:                 [E]
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


beta4 wouldn't boot: Just after the "freeing n kb of unused kernel
memory" message (I think that's the moment the kernel execs init), it
loops on an "attempt to read beyond end of device" message.

Back to 20040407 snapshot:

When I select "Install base system", it displays "Installing the
debian base system" and the progress bar, but the latter stays at zero
and it returns to the main menu after a second or two. "Check CD-ROM
integrity" says the CD is not a Debian CD, on console 4, anna says
"bad d-i packages file" and ": not such file" (seems like it is
complaining there is no file with an empty name). Eject CD, put it
back, retry. Nope. I go to console 2, mount shows that
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 is mounted on /cdrom. "ls /cdrom" shows empty
directory. "umount /cdrom" and "mount /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /cdrom", then
"ls /cdrom" shows something sensible. Go back to console 1. "Install
base system". Works.

The filesystems were not cleanly unmounted after install: fsck run at
first boot from HD, fails critically with I/O error. remount root ro,
fsck on both disks finds no error, continue boot.

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.
