Bug#802683: Fails to automatically find iso on /dev/sdh

Package: iso-scan
Version: 1.53
Severity: important
Tags: d-i


I'm trying to install using a custom USB-stick, as described here:

I followed the instructions there, copying 
debian-8.0.2-amd64-netinst.iso into the top directory of the USB stick.

The system I'm installing on (sorry, the info below is my desktop, not 
the target system) has 7 drives in, and the USB stick[0] appears as 
/dev/sdh in the installer.

I'm using preseed, and the installer gets to doing iso-scan, but fails 
to actually find the .iso.

Oddly, though, if I then follow through the menus thus:
[Continue] at the failed-to-find-ISO prompt
Scan hard drives
select /dev/sdh
[installer finds the ISO, so say yes]

The installer then says:

"Successfully mounted FIXME installer ISO image"

The ISO file debian-8.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso on /dev/sdh (FIXME) will be 
used as the installation ISO image

[if I select Continue at this point, the installation proceeds happily]

I think this is a bug - the installer clearly *can* find my ISO it just 
isn't doing so...



[0] strictly, it's a fake USB stick provided by passing the image to the 
RMM's USB-stick device redirection menu
