I could not help here (I suspect the problem of ide CD-Rom solved now)

Do not remember but ...

Yes, that is what I do to install my b2000 (as a copy of my b180).

But now an easiest way for you would certainly be to download a more recent
cd-image into: http://pateam.esiee.fr/cd-images/testing/
(see also explanation on http://pateam.esiee.fr/download.html#deb page)

Many progress where made since my test (about a month ago).
At least it would help you to format your disk and (if as I you do not access
internet from your b1000) a shell which would allow you to copy your b180 on
your  b1000.

I am confident that this solution will help you successfully,
