I reinstalled the machine using the instructions from http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s03.html#usb-copy-flexible This causes the usb stick known as /dev/sda the laptop disk is known as /dev/sdb At the end the installtion process writes the boot sector to /dev/sda (which is in this case the installtion media. The installation files from http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer- i386/current/images/netboot/ I used are from Jan-17. Thanks, Rainer Am Samstag, 15.
