IIRC the kernel on the installer ISOs is a generic one. Maybe that makes
Just installed the generic one (`-itanium` instead of `-mckinley`) and
did sum benchmarking and didn't notice any issues. So the kernel type
seems to make no difference - at least not for my rx2620.

Ok, I understand now, thanks for clarification. Strange situation. I'll
have a look at my rx2660s as soon as time and temperature allows.
If installing from the 2019-07-16 snapshot doesn't work through, you
could try to netboot your rx2660 from the netboot installer (current
version on , contains a tarball with the files for netbooting the
installer), but I couldn't find a version from the snapshot date above
on snapshot.debian.org. So no luck with that. :-/
