Ok now it can boot.

CD player is SATA and it can't see it. Attaching an old IDE one,
everything seems fine.
Any way to make it working?

All modes with TERM=mach-gnu-color (text , automated, expert) start fine.
Graphical mode boots then switches to 1024x768 black screen.
Remaining ones (pseudo-graphical, rescue) once selected, switch to a
resolution my monitor can't show.

In all modes, sometimes it gets stuck at
start ext2fs: Hurd server bootstrap: ext2fs[gunzip:device:rd0] exec

I'd say more but old IDE CD gets timeouts on read right after
completing "Scanning CD-ROM" phase, at "Loading additional conponents
Retrieving libc0.3-udeb". Needs to be cleaned or replaced. Another
reason to make sata one working.
