It's not clear about loading an additional modules, there was specified partman, master boot module, and some other: what should be selected?

You won't need any additional modules.

I want Manual partitioning, but there is 'Guided partitioning' in the menu. Also, does the installer automatically set the proper alignment of the first partition, or I should specify this manually?

When you see Guided, Manual should be below it

I can't get graphical Partition manager like GParted for partitioning disk. The Debian Live CD have no GPparted. The disk partitioning process just given as a series of pages with questions. Also, I read that Partman does not align partitions in GUID Partition Table.
I ended up with burning GParted Live CD and partitioning disk with GParted, that is so much easier.

Btw, I didn't specified labels for partitions (/boot and / root): can specify this when installing Debian? Or I had to specify this when partitioning?

Hi,

You can label(new volume label) the partition during filesystem creation;
Quote:
man mkfs.ext4;
NAME
mke2fs - create an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem

SYNOPSIS
mke2fs [ -c | -l filename ] [ -b block-size ] [ -D ] [ -f fragment-size ] [ -g blocks-per-group ] [ -G number-of-groups ] [ -i bytes-per-inode ] [ -I
inode-size ] [ -j ] [ -J journal-options ] [ -N number-of-inodes ] [ -n ] [ -m reserved-blocks-percentage ] [ -o creator-os ] [ -O feature[,...] ] [
-q ] [ -r fs-revision-level ] [ -E extended-options ] [ -v ] [ -F ] [ -L volume-label ] [ -M last-mounted-directory ] [ -S ] [ -t fs-type ] [ -T
usage-type ] [ -U UUID ] [ -V ] device [ blocks-count ]

mke2fs -O journal_dev [ -b block-size ] [ -L volume-label ] [ -n ] [ -q ] [ -v ] external-journal [ blocks-count ]

DESCRIPTION
mke2fs is used to create an ext2, ext3, or ext4 filesystem, usually in a disk partition. device is the special file corresponding to the device (e.g
/dev/hdXX). blocks-count is the number of blocks on the device. If omitted, mke2fs automagically figures the file system size. If called as
mkfs.ext3 a journal is created as if the -j option was specified.

The defaults of the parameters for the newly created filesystem, if not overridden by the options listed below, are controlled by the
/etc/mke2fs.conf configuration file. See the mke2fs.conf(5) manual page for more details.

Options

-L new-volume-label
Set the volume label for the filesystem to new-volume-label. The maximum length of the volume label is 16 bytes.
'L' option is valid for Ext2/3/4 when you make the filesystem.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
