Hello ring0, welcome to LQ,

are there any other options than to install the packages from a CD/DVD drive?

Or did I misunderstand your question and your system stops while booting because it didn't find a CD-device?

You need to explain a bit more. Did you take a live cd version of debian or what exact version.

At what point does this usb install fail? Do you mean at some point in the installation process it asks for a cd as source or way before the installation program.
