Boot failure with recent installer builds


I've tested the recent Debian installer build on my SunBlade 1000 and, 
even though the installation completes normally, the machine refuses 
to boot after that, cannot even get to SILO prompt. I've filed an 
installation report about that (http://bugs.debian.org/565639), but I 
thought that it would be nice if someone else sees this. If you have a 
sparc box and a couple of hours, and not afraid to lose all your data, 
please test the installer by downloading a recent image from


(I used the netinst CD image), trying it out and filing an 
installation report. Template can be found at


I'm particularly interested in reports of the system not booting after 
the installation. Lenny CD image works for me, so it can be used to 
restore your system to working order
