Instead of guessing what might be the issue here:
Have you read section 3.2 of the jessie release notes (1)?
Have you read the Appendix B (especially B.1.1.)of the install doc
available for Jessie (2)?
Maybe you can find the solution to your specific problem there.
you are running automated install with debconf priority critical and, as
a consequence, this question is being (deliberately) omitted.
you are already using preseed via initrd which is loaded directly at the
beginning of the install process and thus are waiting in vain for the
prompt to appear.
But I don't like guessing without more info so I refer you to the docs.
