Ah, yes, exactly, wheezy should use the Joy theme, but see:

You have probably hit (which seem to be the same bug):

  <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=627163#60>
  <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=683706>
  <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=686786>
  <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=691922>

Or even something similar:

Well, there is no point in preparing it, because anyway partman will
play with it at the next cycle.

My suggestion would be to use previous debian-installer hd-media images,
the Debian Events Box was used at FOSDEM 2012, thus images from that
period would work.  I do not have access to that machine right now, but
I do tomorrow, so if you do not find anything useful, I can always
upload them somewhere.

Thx, bye,
