You can listen to me rambling about this at :


Just skip ahead to the 3:45 time mark and we can see partition process
is not there.

Not sure what's wrong here, but you could try to install additional
udebs at the step where you can select the netconsole for installation.
IIRC there should be a udeb for parted.

The installer interface nowadays uses screen, so you should be able to
switch the screens with "ctrl + a" and "n" (next) or "p" (previous) or
just the number of the screen.

The (error) message when the partitioning step is started could be
helpful for debugging.

With the screen commands you can switch to screen #4 and copy the
messages from the log ("ctrl + a" and "esc" to activate scrolling
through the buffer with "up/down" or "page up/down") instead of
"copying" it from the glass console.
