I do appreciate the feedback. But a more complete feedback with some pre-testing would be nice,
anything that helps me spend less time and effort to get the issues sorted out.

So, in general if you see a problem, try different configuration settings, check the logs yourself
for suspicious messages and maybe try to reproduce the error on different architectures. Any test
that may help pinpoint the problem is useful because it means I will have to spend less time doing
that myself and can fix the issues more efficiently.

You can also grep the debian-installer, GRUB and related sources on Salsa and sources.debian.org
to see where the error message comes from. That information is very helpful, too, and it also
helps you becoming more familiar with the code.

This should do the trick, yes:
