I tried both tab to append to the default install kernel parameters
(which is what I was doing on wheezy) and esc to get the boot: prompt.
Originally I was trying auto=true priority=critical but shortened it to
just 'auto' after reading that doc.

You've hit the nail on the head. network-preseed is missing from this


It's definitely present in the beta 1 amd64 netinst image:


I'd definitely expect the network-preseed udeb to be included in the
netinst image. Is this a regression?
