SOLVED: Debian installation insists on CD-ROM


Hello,

I tried to install Debian 9 in VM from an iso file. At some point the installation insists on A CD-ROM and I am stuck here.

Please help.

Thank you!

4. Installation from the live image boot menu does not work
===========================================================

Status: Fixed in 9.0.1

There is a bug in the Packages files included on the live images,
causing the included Debian Installer code to fail with the error
"There was an error reading data from the CD-ROM. Please make sure it
is in the drive. If retrying does not work, you should check the
integrity of your CD-ROM."

Fixed as of 22 June, 00:07 AM GMT +3

I'd offer this advice:
Wait a week. There may be other, less public issues.

There seems to be some discussion wrt: with su and the install.
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=133551

The OP in that post assigned a root password and that led to su being "less than co-operative", is my take on that.
Later replies show same for new installs. su is b0rked, I gather.
Or could be a feature enforcement to impose additional host security maybe?
Breaking some bad habit perhaps. "Yes, we turned this off so you'd do xyz" with your Host Security.

Just sayin'
Peace.
