Installation Debian 9.7 Laptop HP 240G

Postby LBlackwell » 2020-01-28 13:53

I'm trying to install debian using the debian 9.7 64 bits non-free firmware iso in a HP 240G laptop, with 120Gb SSD and 4Gb of RAM. The non-free firmware is needed by the Realtek network adapters

I'm using a 8Gb pendrive for usb booting and have already tried with a 16Gb pendrive

The instalation fails in the end, when triyng to configure package manager, using the cli installer, the error messages are:
Code: Select all
fclose: No space left in the disk
libkmod: kmod_load_new_from_loaded could not open /proc/modules: No such file or directory
error: could not get a list of modules: No such file or directory
grep: /proc/meminfo: no such file or directory
Cannot determine system memory

It says there is no space left in the disk, but there is nothing in the disk. I've selected automatic partiotining in a clean disk.

Thank you in advance!

Why are you trying to install an old version of the previous release? You should try Debian 10.2 instead.

And how did you transfer the image to the USB stick? Not all methods work, see the official installation guide for the approved techniques.

It seems your partitions are too small, too. Are you certain you're not trying to install onto the USB stick instead of the SSD?
