Yes, I did a netboot from an USB stick. I intended to follow the Debian GNU/Linux Installation Guide to install from USB stick: "For the first installation method you'll need to download an installer image from the netboot directory (at the location mentioned in Section 4.2.1, “Where to Find Installation Images”) and use the “flexible way” explained below to copy the files to the USB stick." http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/ch04s03.html The only thing I had to do to fix the problem, was booting once with the usb stick with the new bootloader and then run grub-install as root. Starting from then I could boot without the usb stick.
