mount /dev/sdc /media/cdrom *sdc may differ **if your iso is on a usb
then go to link above and follow directions.

lol not as simple as auto with Xubuntu 11 but at least debian 7 is support and is still simple install.
Thanks to all who replied!

The real problem is caused by nouveau that unfortunatly is buggy with all nv10 cards and makes them unusable with free drivers, and as already said proprietary drivers are working only up to xorg 1.12:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51477

Maybe write your experience too in the bugzilla page and they'll fix the problem! After all in the main page they state that nv10 is working, buf in fact it's not!
