Package: win32-loader
Version: 0.6.3
Severity: normal

On a new laptop on which I never used win32-loader successfully before, I 
succeeded to run win32-loader now that it works on Vista 64-bit (thank you), 
but it failed once rebooting and trying to launch d-i. After selecting in 
Windows' bootloader to run d-i, I get a GRUB 2 menu with no choices. A "first 
choice" was selected, but there was no label and I only saw that it was 
highlighted. I couldn't boot it.
I can't remember what's supposed to happen after choosing to run d-i, so I 
don't know whether I should see choices or whether it's abnormal that I see 
I don't know the actual win32-loader version I used, I'm putting 0.6.3 because 
that's the current version and I downloaded debian.exe yesterday.
This only happened on 1 machine once. Sorry to have no more clues, I'd be 
happy to provide you more information if you need.

Closing then (as fixed in Lenny). Thanks for your time!
