The debian version of u-boot is not compatible with the pi's boot loader 
for armhf.  Never has been to my knowledge.

The one time I tried the netinstall, which installs grub and an arm64 
kernel, it booted nicely but networking was broken.

Basicly if you want debian on a pi you must use the raspbian flavor, it 
Just Works, with the usual putzing with networking of course if running 
a host file based network which I am.
