Probably need to use the Testing netinstall and change the sources to Sid - https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof ... 64/iso-cd/

I had a look and found a mini.iso for sid here and corresponding non-free firmware here but there isn't a mini.iso with firmware included. However, since sid is primarily a developmental branch of Debian, one supposes that enabling non-free firmware if necessary, which might be problematic for beginners, would be a trivial matter for developers and other expert sid users, who, to quote the wiki "know their way around Linux, Debian, and the Debian packaging system."

Horrid, hackiness follows, ye have been warned !!!

Well wait a min, actually would need to know what you have in mind before bothering with the madness I was going to discuss. So can you elaborate on what your usecase is, what you're attempting to do ?

All you have to do is put the firmware .deb either in the root or in a directory named /firmware on a second USB stick. The mini-iso will detect the firmware and install it.

Been there, did that :)
