Thanks, I'm gonna give this a try next week when I've got some vacation time.

Is this alpha-5 the latest version or has there been an update this the time of your posting that I should use now instead?

Finally got around to test the Buster RC 1 on my Apollo Lake pc.

Instead of getting stuck with a blinking cursor right after trying to boot from a usb stick, I'm now able to get to the Debian GNU/Linux UEFI installer menu. :o

However, since my test-device is currently not connected through ethernet, I wasn't able to go any further with the netinst-image. The installer just keeps looking for a CD-ROM drive ("no common CD-ROM drive was detected") that my system doesn't have.

EDIT: Didn't connect the dots and somehow didn't thing about downloading one of the "full" CD or DVD images instead. Downloading one know and will keep you posted how it goes.

^ This indicates that you have transferred the image to the USB stick incorrectly.

Strange, never had any issues before when using Etcher to make a bootable USB stick. Or is Debian somehow handling this differently as compared to Ubuntu?

Why bother with a buggy GUI?

Code: Select all
# cp debian.iso /dev/sdX ; sync

^ Is that really so difficult?

My main machine is running MacOS. Should this work terminal command work?

Code: Select all
sudo dd if=/debian-testing-amd64-DVD-1.iso of=/dev/diskX bs=1m

My condolences, that must be just awful.

Yes but be sure to run the sync command afterwards to flush the buffers.

The cp command should also work in that travesty of an operating system you have been tricked into using and it's quicker to type.

I can confirm that I know was finally able to properly install Buster RC1 on my Apollo Lake-machine with Emma storage. :D
