Works, thank you.

We’ll see what we can do to avoid shocking long time d-i contributors… :-)
A first small improvement to avoid that-big-gap-at-the-top is to raise the menu a little. Trivial patch and result screenshot attached.

Also there’s a « _ » character at the beginning of the first menu line, that wasn’t there in Jessie.
It seems to be due to that :
./build/boot/x86/menu.cfg:4:menu title ${BEEP}Debian GNU/Linux installer boot menu

Any idea why / if it can be fixed ?

Do you mean in the project’s git repo on Alioth ?
I would need commit right on the repo then, if you wouldn’t mind.

Cheers !
