Comments/Problems:
Installation fails on base system install with the following error message:
    /lib/partman/choose_partition/60partition_tree/do_option: line 88
then it states
    /lib/partman/active_choices/copy/choices: not found
then it states
    debootstrap error 127

<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

I get the identical error on both machines and in all possible
configurations. The two copies
of netinst were full download of netinst and a daily obtained with jigdo
with good checksum.
The only thing in common between the machines is both have Intel
processors with Intel graphics
but the Dell is much later version.
