I don't want to offend you, but all that you wrote I already found from google 
and friends. 

What I did not find is some info about partman logging.
Searching debian MLs for partman has millions of hits, so its the same like no 
hits - can't read all that.

As partman is internal to d-i, where can I find some info about the numbers 
shown around partition informations?

You wrote, that disc addressing could be converted, if size is smaller than 8 
Gig - none of my partitions fits this condition, so how can I calculate a 
sector from informations of partman log?

kind regards
