I followed instructions from the Debian installer hd-media.
This is an ALIX 2D13 board with serial console.

So I modified sys.conf to boot from console (ok).
Then I modified the image bootloader with serial console support (ok).

Now the CD net-install image boots but does not recognize the flash

I am aware that PXE installation works. But we would like to offer users
and installer on FLASH to ease installation.

Any idea?
