The quick/short fix is to preseed out the firmware question.

cat << EOF >> [root of your cd image]/preseed.conf
# Do NOT offer to install proprietary firmware
# If non-free firmware is needed for the network or other hardware, you

# prompting. Or change to false to disable asking.
d-i hw-detect/load_firmware boolean false
