Install Debian from DamnSmallLinux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 31, 2005
I'm in quite the little interesting situation here. I have an old computer that I want to put debian on(just play along ). Anyways, for now, I have tried many times to make a debian installer from floppies but have run into three problems
1. I don't have any (working) floppy drives on any computer but the one I am using
2. The computer I am using no longer boots up into the DamnSmallLinux, but does boot into a shell, or whatever.
3. I only have 1 working floppy disk
So what I want to know if I can do, is somehow get some type of debian file that will allow me to install debian from the shell. Like, trick it into thinking it is booting off of a CD or Floppy.
What would be the best way to do this? I am able to use the internet on it(links), but do not know what other types of programs are on there that I could use to my advantage.
Thanks for ANY help!
M y head hurts, is sudo necessary just to install debian manually.

Well it's about 3 weeks now been trying to install debian 6.04 squeeze,
dd if=debian-*-netinst.iso of dev/sdb1 doesn't work no such directory, well i mentioned that simply because people keep stating it's easiest way to mount iso on usb stick with boot image.
So while that failed i searched for other alternatives but when i simply request for /dev/sdb1 or even for unmounting is denies me access. while i can use fdisk to partition usb stick but results in errors.
df -k /dev/sdb1 works fine to point.
i try to keep away from e2fsck until i have reason using it.
but this dam sudo command functions like debilitating disease, if you asked me use it simply to gain access too files then fine!
Why hell do i even need it. while im oblivious to even knowing slacko puppy's password apart from user name being "root"
But all im trying to do is squeeze debian on to my usb stick manually while ignoring bootin or pendrive. i've encountered serious issues with those while

[SOLVED] Unable to install Debian on asusa7n8x MB Page 2

ATI Wonder (9600) Video Adapter if this card is anything like the rage pro that I have it will possibly be loading gnome in fallback mode. I think that I had to install linux-firmware-nonfree to get it going, also desktop wouldn't load.
The only thing that saved me was it was an addon card, so I was able to connect monitor to onboard & install firmware.

Can I install Debian 7 on uefi enabled laptop?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 17, 2015
I purchased a few days ago an Acer Aspire E15 not knowing BIOS have been replaced by UEFI, trying to installl Debian 7 alongside Windows 8.1 is a real hassle. After many unsuccessful attempts I managed to install it after doing this:
-disable Windows 8.1 "fast starting"
-disable Windows 8.1 "secure boot"
-allowing first boot option to be DVD drive
-shrink Windows 8.1 partition to 50GB but this had to be done with the Debian partitioner because an error made under the Windows procedure could not be corrected under Windows
-partitionning accepted the ESP partition as-is and installing started automatically
-some attempts at selecting mount point for the ESP Windows partition as /boot/uefi as recommended in some tutorials/howtos had not work giving message: "uefi partition not found"
the Installer seemed to have failed installing GRUB so, after it asked to remove the first installation DVD in order to reboot, it rebooted into Windows 8.1.

Should I install Debian?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2007
I've looked it over again and again.
I want to install it, but what's really required? I don't have much net speed to do the minimal disk, but is downloading all 23 cds? Any one got any suggestions?
[just to note that I'm on a mission to learn linux as much as possible. I understand the Ubuntu is based on Debian or something, and perhaps trying this out might teach me something]
