Right. For my curiosity I tested the netboot SD card image of

booted from.  To my great surprise this worked flawlessly (just
need a power cycle as the reboot simply hang).  This work only
with the netboot image.  The hd-media require an other
partition with the ISO file making the partition/format fail
because the SD card device is busy.  I don't know at this stage
if the boot stage is a residual of the image creation on the SD
card or if it was wrote by the installer.
The debian-installer doesn't install u-boot, but it takes
explicit care not to destroy an existing u-boot installation
during the partitioning step.

Yes. It take so much care that it don't write u-boot when it must write it... If the installer is able to take care of the region where u-boot is, why don't allow him to optionally copy that region from the SD card to the eMMC ?

Regarding the hd-media image: installing to the SD card from
which the installer is started works if the CD/DVD iso is
provided on another storage device such as on a USB stick.

What's the point to support a such complicated install setup if at the end there is no u-boot to start the system ?
