Chose expert install.
Installed to external USB drive, with the intent to later put this drive into the computer
by hooking it up to SATA port. During installation:

/dev/sda : USB stick (the installer media)
/dev/sdb : 500 GB internal
/dev/sdc : 500 GB in external caddy (target drive)

GRUB step did not ask for which drive to install bootloader to, so it took sdb, had to manually fix later.

But the real problem and reason for this report is that the ahci and ext4 modules are not included on the initrd (just
usb-storage etc), resulting in an unbootable system and drop to busybox prompt when SATA-connected.
Who does NOT need ahci these days!?

Was able to boot after doing this:
nano /etc/initramfs-tools/modules # added ahci and ext4
update-initramfs -u

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) and/or
- moreinfo was asked and not given.

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.
