Partition making thingy makes a i (part 9) partition that starts
at some large number and ends at 0 (yes, this is back to front)
Because of the above-mentioned partition aboot fails to get installed
because partition 9 conflicts where aboot needs to go, you cannot
use -f9 flag because it says you can only have 8 partitions.
Manually removing partition 'i' makes aboot installer happy.
(fdisk commands, d i w x )
Rebooting, it still tries to reboot off cdrom (dqb0) instead of
drive (dqa0). Hit reset button to fix this.
Booting with kernel that is installed initially results in massive
number of pci errors, just like before. However this problem is not
present when booting from CDROM. I am unsure why it happens only

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