That's it. The install-utility recognize our "/usr - partition". Thank you
Brad for this help.

The install-utility says:
Mounting partition 'A' as /
Mounting partition 'G' as /usr.
                              ^ This was the dot I mean. First I thought
                                the install-utility wants to mount a
                                directory named "/usr." .
