Bug#691922: installation failure with 2TB disk
Boot method: USB stick
Image version: http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/testing/main/

says it is a 256 MB image, so my 1 GB stick (Kingston) should be enough.
zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdc

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.
