Default Bug#499575: You should specify filesystems by UUID or LABEL


Some time ago, I reported bug 417534, describing a somewhat similar problem.

Maks Attems closed it with this explanation:

Yes, the breakage during the upgrade is annoying, but you would not
remove a working kernel before verifying that your new one works -- so
the breakage is temporary, and not terribly difficult to fix.

I have not played with the Debian Installer in some time, but I
sincerely hope that it writes UUIDs to /etc/fstab and the boot loader
configuration. (Ubuntu does, IIRC.)

BTW, as you noticed, the k7 flavour has been dropped, so you will have
to switch to either the i686 or amd64 flavour.
