The CD would not boot. When the system was ready to boot off the CD, the
screen cleared, the cursor flashed in the upper left corner, and the
system froze (not even keyboard lights or CTRL-ALT-DEL would work). I
verified that the CD worked by booting it on another system. I also
verified that the HP system would boot from the CD by booting a Woody
installation CD and a Knoppix CD.

I have Woody installed (from CD) and working on this system already and
was wanting to test the new installer. This same problem occured with
the Beta 2 installer (downloaded on March 13, 2004 from the debian site).

d-i and debian CDs have seen lots of development (including a stable
release and several etch betas) since the last traffic on these bugs,
so I'm closing these - the reported problems should all be fixed by
now. If you're still experiencing problems, please re-open or open a
new bug against newer versions.
