    That's the device with PCI ID [1814:0781] in the hardware summary.
    It seems that it is currently not supported by any free Linux drivers, and
    thus not by the Debian kernel.

    See here for some info google found:
    http://scraping.icebo.org/index.php/...koya-md-96630/

    Known issue; see: http://bugs.debian.org/471892
    Upgrading to the 2.6.25 kernel from unstable may well fix this.

    Well, you're not really giving us anything useful either here...
    My guess is that you are affected by the first erratum listed for the
    Beta2 release: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/errata.

    Please check (in the debug shell) the contents of /etc/fstab and compare
    that to what disk devices are being recognized (by listing contents
    of /dev/ or using the output of dmesg).
    Also provide the output of 'echo $ROOT'.

    Cheers,
    FJP

    Will have to try. How can I do this during install?
    With 2.6.24 I have no network and after installation I do not get any
    drives.

    The problem is that there are NO drives (sdx) under dev and I don't
    know how to get the system to recognize any media (also no usb devices etc.).
    $ROOT gives /dev/sda1 which should be correct.
    If I put a newer business-card iso image on the beta2 hd-media,
    I'm not able to install because the installer does not recognize the
    codename of the distribution.
    If I'm trying a daily build for the hd-media, I was yet unlucky as
    these immediately rebooted after unpacking the kernel.

    Thank you!
    Michael

    Change to a debug shell (on VT2 or VT3) some time after base system
    installation is complete but no other steps are actually running and do:
    - chroot /target
    - wget http:///debian/pool/main/l/linux-2.6/
    - dpkg -i

    > The problem is that there are NO drives (sdx) under dev


    That is very strange as the driver needed by your disk controller is a
    standard ahci driver. Please check in the initramfs debug shell:
    - if that driver is loaded
    - if some other (IDE?) disk driver is loaded
    - any messages in 'dmesg' regarding recognition of hard disks

    Are there any /dev/hda devices (other than maybe for an IDE CD drive)?

    Or if you don't have network during installation either: copy the package
    to a USB stick before starting the install and install it from there.

    Note that current "daily" installer images use 2.6.25, so with those you
    may already have network during installation.

    I have a similar problem with my Medion akoya E1210. While installing
    with the lenny "daily" netinst image, there is no ethernet-card found...
    If I copy the package to the usb-stick, how can I use it during the
    installation?

    udev aborts its work before any of these devices are created.
    Drivers seem to be "half-loaded", upon modprobe ahci (for example), the
    system hangs. It takes already several minutes to reach the initramfs
    debug shell.

    > Are there any /dev/hda devices (other than maybe for an IDE CD drive)?


    No, there are no ide devices in this system.
    This device is a version of the MSI Wind U100:

    This did the trick. Now I'm able to boot into my system.
    Thanks!
