you're right here, it's modules problem, they are not being present in
initramfs, so to fix it, boot from cdrom again into rescue mode and
add this 2 modules to:

root@deb4g:/tmp# grep -v ^# /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

and update kernel initrd from rescue shell with
# update-initramfs -u

exit rescue shell and reboot, it should boot ok now... (but there
would be no telnet console present on boot, since it needs to be
enabled, before reboot from rescue shell with :

root@debian:/# cd /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants#
root@debian:/etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants# ln -sf
/lib/systemd/system/console-getty.service console-getty.service

or if you know IP address of installed debian, login via ssh and
enable with systemctl :

# systemctl enable console-getty
