[SOLVED] Can't install Debian

Postby pawRoot » 2019-10-17 17:06

When i boot the installer it gets to the "Detect CD ROM" step, saying it cannot
detect CD Rom (which i obviously don't even have) and then asking me to load drivers from
CD Rom.

I have tried multiple installers:

debian-10.1.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso
debian-10.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso
firmware-10.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso


Installing from external USB drive (using Etcher for that)

Shouldn't it ask me about internet connection ? i would like to install everything by using WiFi.

My PC specs are in signature.

Thanks

Use the methods recommended in the installation guide instead, that error is seen when tools attempt to "correct" an isohybrid image.

Ninth generation Intel with an operating system whose package versions were frozen last December? Good luck with that...

You can use the mini.iso to install sid directly, just select the Expert Install from the Advanced Options then choose sid for the mirror.
