Package: installation-reports

Boot method: USB
Image version: http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/amd64/daily/hd-media/boot.img.gz, http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/daily-builds/daily/arch-latest/amd64/iso-cd/debian-testing-amd64-businesscard.iso

I have set up the USB pendrive as follows: 

# Change this to identify the device of your USB pendrive. Check twice!

# USB pendrive image.

# Installer ISO image.

curl -L "$boot" | gunzip > "$dev"; 
mount "$dev" /media/usb; 
pushd /media/usb; 
curl -OL "$iso";
umount "$dev";

Booting with the pendrive plugged in hangs after showing the message

  (process:1067): INFO: kbd-mode: setting console mode to Unicode (UTF-8)

, and if I add the "nopat" option, the machine hangs or after displaying the
language selection dialog. I have tried the following options on the boot

  install nopat
  install noapic nolapic
  install nopat noapic nolapic

Since installation hangs that early, I only can provide data gathered at a
previous attemt with a different (stupid) pendrive setup:

*** NOTE: data below gathered on the same machine, with *different*
*** installation media setup!

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.
