Wheezy Net Install


Can someone link me to the latest amd64 Wheezy net install image? All I'm finding are the CD and DVD images but I don't have any blank disc. Just a thumb drive.

The CD/DVD images can be booted on thumb drive. Try unetbootin

or if you have access to a Linux machine use the dd command.

This is the last question for tonight, will I need to keep all these partitions? I know I need to shrink the sda5 to make room for the debian root, home and swap but my god, Sony sure stuck a lot of crap on this drive. I wonder if I really need all these partitions?

Code:
/dev/sda1: LABEL="SONYSYS" UUID="365A-D9B0" TYPE="vfat" 
/dev/sda2: LABEL="Windows RE tools" UUID="2AB858EDB858B951" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/sda3: UUID="E01C-88E2" TYPE="vfat" 
/dev/sda5: LABEL="Main" UUID="1AC4D74DC4D729B1" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/sda6: LABEL="Recovery" UUID="5C5E600E5E5FDEF8" TYPE="ntfs"

Seems there is a win install and a recovery partition in case you need to reinstall the original OS. (Windows).
If you do not, need this, you can whipe the disk.

I think I will keep them but I may dd them over to a removable storage drive for posterity. I like the idea of blowing out the drive and starting new with XP then installing Debian without that UEFI crap. However, I wonder if this will keep me from getting into my bios since that is done by pressing an assist button while the machine is turned off. I have to wonder if that's what that Sony partition does???

The link in the post, of mine, you quoted is to the net inst images.

I think the SonySys partition will be a boot partition.
