Well, you NEED to reboot to FINISH the install.
You can also install at this reboot the 'rescue' package 
apt-cache policy rescue
  Installed: 0.3-3
  Candidate: 0.3-3
  Version Table:
 *** 0.3-3 0
        500 ftp://ftp.internatif.org ./ Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
There you'll find all info about your machine.
