Problem with Debian 9.8 installation


I installed Debian 9.8, which I downloaded from here https://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#smallcd on my Mint 18.3/Windows 10 dual boot laptop as a third operating system. Nowhere in the installation did I have an option to use Wi-Fi to download the packages, so I had to install it as a "minimal system". It all went fine, until it was installed. My laptop was then triple boot, so I booted into debian but the OS didnt start. There was only a black screen, where I had to enter my username and password, and when I did, nothing happened. The OS did not start, it only showed $user under the lines where I entered my user and passwd.
debian-9.8.0-amd64-netinst is the name of the .iso

My specs are the following:

the OS started just fine. That's what a minimal install is, command line only, no GUI...

You need the firmware image copied on to a USB stick and than plug it in than try the installation again. Debian does not include non open source drivers.

From this website

http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/un...retch/current/

Download the current zip file than uncompressed it copy it to a USB stick.again plug in the USB and than run the installation disc.

Name the USB stick firmware

as for the wifi, I see that you are using iwlwifi, which despite being an open-source driver, will not work without the firmware package (and the firmware package is non-free). debian by default doesn't enable the non-free repos, so its quite possible that your wifi just can't be used on the basic net install iso (at least not without installing the non-free firmware).

if you are using stretch (9.8), then this should be the right download for the firmware. https://packages.debian.org/stretch/firmware-iwlwifi

yes, you mint install has them, but you're question was on debian net install.

if the firmware package I mentioned isn't present on your net install iso, then that intel wifi ain't gonna work.


the 'buntus (including mint) normally have the non-free firmwares installed by default. the debian net iso might not.
