On first attempt the onboard NIC was not recognised so I disabled it in BIOS 
and installed a PCI ethernet card. This was recognised and the install went a 
bit further.

Installation stopped at a screen headed 

No disk drive was detected. If you know the driver needed by your disk drive, 
you can select it from the list.

In order to see if there was an updated driver to be had I tried installing 
and 		debian-testing-amd64-CD-1.iso 		dated 16-6-2008
Both with results similar to the above.

I attach "hardware-summary" and "syslog" files from the last install attempt.

Regards, Rob

According to the nVidia people, this is an issue that should be solved in 
2.6.25 kernels. Quoting them:
! This is another msi issue, you can check the following thread for
! detail. 
! http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org/msg242110.html
! http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org/msg249282.html

It would be good if you could confirm this by installing the 2.6.25 kernel 
from unstable and booting that without the pci=nomsi option.

In the mean time I've reassigned your report to the kernel team and am now 
closing it for the appropriate kernel version.
Note that the reassign means that I will not be receiving any follow-up 
mails anymore unless a CC is added to either myself or the debian-boot 
mailing list (the last is preferred).
