Wheezy isn't released as stable yet and those daily install images may
well not work on any particular day.

You might like to try one or more of the following:

* Try again will the current available build as it might have been

* Submit a bug report on the failing wheezy loongson-2f install.

* Try to install squeeze instead.
  - http://wiki.debian.org/DebianYeeloong/HowTo/Install#Squeeze
  - If you want you can then upgrade to wheezy from the squeeze install.

* On the wheezy system when in the GRUB bootloader (or PMON?) add:
  to the kernel args line which will make Debian skip an fsck on boot.
  Not sure what whether this will result in booting into a working
  system though.
