You're right, I did not delete the 3rd "Whole disk" partition.
(I performed the installation with the debian install guide under the

Which is exactly what I did.

The disk is around 36GB. The kernel seems to detect it all right.
When I say "console", I mean RJ45 console cable through Serial A.
Meaning, one single tty, an no additionnal tty that would allow me to look
at logs / try something using a shell.
Otherwise, yes, the machine is alive (ctrl+sth brought me back to the
"initialize partition" menu).

It really seemed as if the install goes OK as long as there is not too
much disk access. Formating a swap is still OK, formating a more
reasonable partition (1 GB for /) is not.
