Which iso to download for bootable usb stick ?

Postby Siegfried999 » 2018-01-15 23:42

Hi everyone,

I'm new to Linux and I want to try Debian with bootable usb stick, but I don't know which iso to download. Is it netinst or xfce cd 1 I must download ?
With USB installer I must choose Debian Live or Netinst ? If I choose Debian Live, I don't see the iso files in my download folder. I'm really confused :(

Thanks
Bobby

You really can use any ISO image to make a bootable usb stick, but I have never heard of "usb installer" I don't know what that is.
Copy/paste :
Code: Select all
How to make a bootable USB stick with Debian on it

into your favourite search engine,...

If you just want to try Debian, the Debian Live image is what you need, the netinstall image, well , like it's name says, it is for installing Debian, but it is not a complete system.

I don't see the iso files in my download folder.

It would be just 1 file, I have no idea why it does not show in your download
folder, Did you down load it ? Did you have it set to download to that folder, ?
How did you try downloading ? Some operating systems and browsers do not work very well, maybe that is the problem.
I'm really confused :(

No problem , so am I.
