Bug#691922: installation failure with 2TB disk

Package: installation-reports
Boot method: USB stick
Image version: http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/testing/main/

22:54 10-10-12	34044754
f5ba7c69f0c53e6f245443140c9b7a7b  boot.img.gz

says it is a 256 MB image, so my 1 GB stick (Kingston) should be enough.

zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdc
gzip: stdout: No space left on device
fdisk /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 1000 MB, 1000341504 bytes

gzip -l boot.img.gz 
         compressed        uncompressed  ratio uncompressed_name
           34044754          1002438656  96.6% boot.img

Could you make boot image slightly smaller?  I believe this does
not cause any problems though.  

apas02.html could also have a link to 'Debian netinst CD image'.

Then I plugged 2 TB disk. Now installation hangs at: "Searching drives
for an installer ISO image /dev/sda4"

I made partitions to my 2 TB disk when testing it:  3 primary
partitions, 21.5 GB each. Rest of the disk for logical partitions. 
I did not make any file systems.

So /dev/sda4 is almost 2 TB extended partition. It should not be
searched for anything.

Without 2 TB disk it seems to work.  

After reboot I selected expert mode and then selected /dev/sdb for ISO
image search.  Now it worked!

I'll make another report later for rest of the installation.
