It is hard to tell, but it seems the current state is hardcoded in different places: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2017-May/msg00068.html https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/linuxonibm/com.ibm.linux.z.lhdd/lhdd_r_console_sum.html I think it would be better to make debian-installer smarter about this since we will probably run into the same problem again with a different architecture/driver. -- Valentin
