Re: experiences with debian amd64 EFI test CD, build 3


I am sorry but I have no logs for you today. I tried today with a spare 2TB HD (instead of the 500GB HD I use for my running system). Installing Win7 was just fine, but the Debian EFI CD just stopped working after choosing "text based installer". So I guess my plan for tomorrow is to grab a smaller HD and try again. I know there is a spare 250GB HD somewhere so I will try with that one. Sorry...

OK, thanks for that. Hmmm, not quite sure why it's not using the
existing partition here. Do you have anything important on the Debian
system yet? Could you try a reinstall and grab the syslog off for me
Yes, ok, I can do that. I will use another HD, and reinstall the same
setup there. By doing that I can also be sure that error did not come up
due to a mistake I made :-)

What do you want me to do in detail? Use the EFI installer, don't create
an EFI boot partition and if the error shows up, create one, finish
installation and send the syslog to you?
Ish. Please run the installation again, at least up until the point
where it recognises (or not) the Windows EFI boot partition. If you
can send logs at that point, that would be great. You'll probably need
to copy them off onto the hard drive somewhere else, or onto a USB
stick. I'm hoping there will be a clue in the logfile, then I'll
probably give you replacements for a couple of the installer packages
or a new image with more debug in the right area. OK?

Thanks for helping with this, it's invaluable.
