Bug#600789: debian-installer: Xen block device driver cannot be loaded

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

I have tried to install both Sid and Squeeze from the provided Xen netboot images.

However, the installation cannot be completed since the installer does not detect the "disks".
I have tried loading the xen-blkfront manually. If I do, the following error appears in the kernel's messages:

[   80.560746] xen_blkfront: Unknown symbol xen_platform_pci_unplug

Note that the problem occurred on both the amd64 and the i386 version of the netboot images.

-- System Information:
