installer started fine from usb-stick and installation proceeded until
"Searching drinves for an installer ISO image. All modules were
loaded just fine but then the installer says "Scanning
/dev/discs/disc0/part3 (in My eBooks/) .." and stop at 30% scanning.
It remains there for about 5-10 min and then starts the scanning again
until the 30% stage.
/var/log/messages reports the modules loaded (last entry: sd_mod)
/var/log/syslog reports the following:
user.notice hd-image-detect: Failed mounting /dev/discs/disc0/part2
syslog.warn klogd: VFS: Can't find ext2 filesystem on dev ide0(3,3)
syslog.err klogd cramfs: wrong magic
syslog.warn klogd: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
syslog.warn klogd: VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev ide0(3,3)
syslog.warn klogd: sh-2021: reiserfs_read_super: ca not find reiserfs on ide0(3,3)
user.notice hd.image-detect: Mounted /dev/discs/disc0/part3 for first pass
The first message is presumable OK since there ist an ntfs on
/dev/hda2. (Same message are also reported for /dev/hda1). The following
messages also make sense, since there ist a vfat fs installed on
/dev/hda3. However, the installation hangs on the final user.notice
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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.
