Bug#706112: debian-installer: Wheezy installer always install bootloader in /dev/sda

Package: debian-installer
Severity: serious

Default x86_64 Installation CD of Wheezy has next bug:
- while it is asking to install bootloader it isn't asking where to
install bootloader

In this case, when I install Debian from usb-flash-drive on another
usb-hard-drive and those names are, for example, /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc,
I need to install bootloader to /dev/sdc (or /dev/sdb). But installer
always install bootloader to /dev/sda. Of course, I already had another
system on /dev/sda, and it was CentOS, so I needed resque disk to
recover my bootloader from /dev/sda.

Going further, when I need to install Debian on a dozen of
usb-hard-drives, each time I need to resque my bootloader on main system
on /dev/sda.
