After sending my previous post I did a last quick test and guess
what: first try, first hit! ;) -> "edd=off" did the trick (again).
So similar to issue348 "edd=off" makes the machine boot but before
closing this (again) I have to ask where this problem comes from.
Again: Ubuntu and gparted had no difficulties with booting their
Live-CDs so the question is if this is a (vanilla-)kernel problem
(and there is a upstream-bts-entry somewhere) or if this is
IMHO using a bootoption to get the system running should be
considered broken and we should keep this open until it is
//really// solved. Don't you think so too?
