Why does choosing "expert" at the "boot:" prompt *not* set the priority?
I had to choose "back" a couple of times to get to the main menue then
change the priority to "low" in order to get detailed questions!
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
and ideas you had during the initial install.>
Installed in "expert" mode so I could choose to install "sid" rather than "wheezy".
when it came time to reboot into the installed system,
I got the "CD or Linux" stage 1 prompt, choose "l" for Linux, then
got flashing question mark on top of folder. Similar to when
Mac OpenFrimware can't find a bootable partition.
See attached logs.
