Debian-installer-version: http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/daily/netboot/pxeboot.tar.gz (dated 2004-07-18 12:36), downloading "testing" packages

Machine: Homebuilt PC
Processor: AMD Duron 1600
Memory: 512MB
Root Device: IDE controller chipset "SiS 5513 Ultra 133", hard drive "WDC WD307AA"

Gets stuck loading module "ide-detect" for just over five minutes,
then on "Scanning disks" (38%) for fifteen minutes, and on 
"Starting up the partitioner / Please Wait" (55%) for an undetermined
amount of time of at least ten minutes after which I gave up. The
machine has worked well with previous versions of debian.

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.
