At boot up, the grub menu should give you the option of going into a 
manual mode (with the "C" key, I think).  It gives you a command prompt 
with full tab completion.  The commands are roughly the same as what you 
see in grub.cfg.  With some trial and error, you could probably get into 
the Debian system with that.
