There is another bug report open for that with a workaround for the
ata_piix change, but it then fails accessing the network card
hm. Stupid question: Why would you use a workaround on command line
while we have a udeb containing the right module, which means that one
can install in Hyper-V out of the box ?
Not so stupid question, quite honestly I had no idea how to include a
udeb that is not shipped by default into a CD (I now found
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Modify/CD). And the workaround
for ata_piix is harmless since it only applies for d-i step, while
getting a usable network card without drivers requires using the legacy
card and changing it later, potentially changing MAC addresses as well.
Do you have an image with your patch which I could briefly test? Or
I've used the iso uploaded here:
could you verify operation with the Hyper-V NIC as well?
I've used the monolithic iso I mentionned so it had to download debs to
install debian. I guess this means it's working.
Thanks. I'll try it in the next days.
