I have an HPVM with Net, Disk, and a DVD ISO on host mapped as a DVD

It appears as though the loader didn't hang but expected a GUI , had to
pass boot options to EFI loader
 to tell it to use cmd line Debian install

EFI Shell> fs0:
 fs0> bootia64 linux console=ttyS0

Or upon [Install} you can put Boot Option (linux console=tyS0 ) in

Am able to get in-memory kernel from DVD but Debian installer wont see
CDROM emulation..
I will try this on native HW to see if it works..

thank you for submitting installation reports, much appreciated.

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they were caused by broken hardware and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are quite old (and thus likely fixed today).

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - thats often better, as the bug log 
will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
