Bug#855075: [installer] Installer trouble with dual DVD drives

Package: installation-reports
Followup-For: Bug #855075

Dear Maintainer,

(no need to cc me on followups tks)

tags moreinfo



  i ran into a similar problem, but not with
DVDs, instead it was that i had two USB sticks 
which happened to have iso images on them and 
during the install d-i changed to considering 
the second device the one it was loading things 

  i was able to open a shell and get it
corrected, but for someone else who may not
know how to do this it could be a surprise.

  the fun started when d-i wrote the new 
partition table information and then then 
was trying to load things from it...  :)

  of course, wiping the second device would
have made the problem not happen.
