I started the network installer through GRUB in the Amazon Elastic Comptuter
Cloud, and connected to it through a network console launched via preseeding.

I gave a couple of details on my website: http://charles.plessy.org/Debian/debiâneries/nuage/

While the detection of hard drives apparently went well (see attached
partman log), the partition step fails with the following error.

          ┌────────────┤ [!!] Partition disks ├─────────────┐

Despite being in expert mode with ‘low’ Debconf priority, the above is
the only thing I get at the Partition disks step.  I need to press Escape
to return to the main menu, as otherwise it loops.

I tried to format the virtual drive on its first partition or without
partitionning, but it did not make a difference.

Do you have any idea ?

By the way, this is the first time I made such an advanced usage of the installer
and I must say that I am very impressed.

Have a nice day,
