I'm running Debian squeeze on my Lenovo laptop. Recently I tried to install Debian Jessie on a different partition.
The installation process goes smoothly, but at some point (around 99% completion) my computer just halts. I can boot the system but it is unusable, the window manager won't start and some essential files are missing, for example my user is not even created. Clearly the install crashed.
I tried the install again, same thing happens. Did anyone experience something similar? I found nothing useful under
/var/log, are there any install logs available, if yes where are they located?
