In each case, I preserved partition 1, which held a Windows Vista partition. The free space was either partitioned into a swap and a root partition, or was used as an encrypted partition with LVM holding a swap and root logical volume. I also tried several choices about what partitions were bootable. I didn't really know what this should have been, which may well have been part of the problem. One of the choices I tried was to let the installer automatically partition the free space. For all of these choices, when I got to the Grub screen, the installer did not recognize the Vista installation. Eventually, I went ahead anyway and let grub install. But the installation to the MBR got a fatal error, and trying to let grub install elsewhere eventually got my system pretty messed up. Telling grub to install at /dev/sda2 finally did it in and its not bootable now. Next step will be to try a clean install to the entire drive, overwriting the Vista. As a second oddity, once when I was at the Popularity Contest screen, I hit the Go Back button. This was a mistake, as it locked up the installation and I eventually had to restart the machine and installation to unfreeze it. Thanks for all the great work you people do. I hope this report helps make Debian a bit better.

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. cheers, Holger
