Definitely, os-prober needs fuse module to work properly. D-i is trying
to load the fuse module but it is not available in the d-i environment.

Here is d-i log extract:

Sep 11 02:15:31 anna-install: Installing ufs-modules
Sep 11 02:15:31 anna-install: Installing btrfs-modules
Sep 11 02:15:31 anna-install: Installing fuse-modules
Sep 11 02:15:31 os-prober: unknown udeb fuse-modules

When I load the fuse module manually os-prober works fine.

Therefore solution for bug reports 684265, 686314, 686631, 687286 is to
create fuse-modules udeb package. Patch is available here:


Other problems related to listing other OS's in grub menu, that may or
may not be related to os-prober, are described in bug reports 587397,
603107, 608025, 608219, 609251.

If you see similar problems related to LVM please file a separate bug
