Just after selecting the language and locale, d-i give a message about
being unable to detect CD-ROM.
d-i propose to load a driver from a removable device
I say YES
d-i give another message about being unable to find and mount CD-ROM and
I may only press CONTINUE
d-i get back to the menu
I select 'detect and mount CD-ROM'
all goes well

I tried four different times, rebooting the system, and I always get
this loop.
