Package: debian-installer

I copied this image onto a usb stck with
  dd if=debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=1M
then attempted to boot from it on a Dell Poweredge SC1435 using SOL
(serial console) over the IPMI channel.

After booting I get a blank screen --- so I hit escape and get a boot
prompt.  So far so good.

Then I do:
boot: expert console=ttyS0,57600
Loading /install.amd/vmlinuz.....
Loading /install.amd/initrd.gz.......ready.
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)...

Then I see a blank screen and nothing else happens for at least
fifteen minutes (that was a long as I had patience for).
