Hello everyone. Let me first say that I've installed Debian 8 Cinnamon and upgraded to Debian 9 on a project computer but thats about the extent of my Debian knowledge. I loved the way Debian 9 Cinnamon worked that I wanted to also install it on my Lenovo Thinkpad T420 and ran into issues during my install of Debian 8. I received the following message about missing firmware:
"The missing firmware files are: iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode"
I am new to Debian and am not sure how to install these files during the live install. The wiki pages list where these files are and can be downloaded. I did that and threw them on a thumb drive but the installer wouldn't access them. I'm sure I'm going about this totally wrong and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you.
