I own a Cubox-i4pro as well, and can assert I Rainer's experience is
reproducible: The installer finishes doing its work and reports having
installed the boot loader, but after it attempts to reboot, nothing
happens (the computer just hangs idly).

My Cubox-i was originally installed via a chroot and manual boot
fiddling, as I reported on my blog back in the day¹. In order to check
whether this was a regression, I tried installing Jessie, and also
ended up with a seemingly successful install that didn't boot.

I might have botched something while preparing my Jessie install:
Having all the files at the same directory, it is possible I booted it
with the Stretch kernel — and I fear that because my syslog starts

Jan  1 00:00:03 syslogd started: BusyBox v1.22.1
Jan  1 00:00:03 kernel: klogd started: BusyBox v1.22.1 (Debian 1:1.22.0-19)
Jan  1 00:00:03 kernel: [    0.000000] Booting Linux on physical CPU 0x0
Jan  1 00:00:03 kernel: [    0.000000] Linux version 4.6.0-1-armmp (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Debian 5.4.0-4) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.6.2-2 (2016-06-25)

and of course, the installer started by telling me of a kernel version
conflict :) I cannot dig deeper into this today, but I'll come back to
this topic on Monday. Can somebody confirm whether the Jessie
installer actually works reliably on this machine? (that is, whether
it's always been broken or we have a regression)
