This is a discussion forum, so I think there is not need for images. Some new users have posted images of their displays which show some error message, which they could have written as well.

But you are free to disagree.

we're getting a little off topic here - I posted a couple of images for good reason,
someone declined to view them "because javascript". I reposted the images.

I'd still like suggestions how to work around the bootloader error.

a new boot loader?

Of course. The Debian installer offers all these options.

of the boot options presented from the boot loader.

No, this is "recovery mode". Rescue mode is available in the Debian installer boot menu advanced options.

This is the Calamares installer you can run from a graphic live session. Use the traditional Debian installer instead.

I had other problems running the debian insaller from the cd image. Is the debian installer available from the live boot?

I don't know. I never used a Debian live image.
