I'm sorry but in your first post you said the following:
Quote:
I got my drives partitioned to dual boot windows 8 with no problems and finished the Debian install...no GUI.
Now you say that Debian isn't finished being installed. So which one is it?

Sorry, I missed this last part of your last post. If you've scrubbed the installed version then it's not the time to look for /etc/apt/sources.list That will be determined when you select a mirror appropriate to your location. Ex. I live in the UK and my repositories are found in ftp.uk.debian.org/debian.

My fingers are crossed.

Thumbs down

Same problem.
I didn't know that installing Debian becomes even harder these days - quite disappointing.
I think in my case this IPv6 is messing everything as I can ping the gateway, but nothing else as this stupid system is attempting to resolve IPv6 address of the remote mirror?
Same like Windows is trying to be smarter than the user.
Already tired.

During the install ipv4 & ipv6 are configured, which isn't a problem. ipv6 just allows for larger physical addresses to be used. Also you can disable ipv6 if you wish to.

Hi again.
But how if the grub hasn't been installed to the mbr yet?
I don't need to use GUI to install the operating system, but the wizard is not functioning properly.
This is messing up the whole installation process.
I really prefer to install OS the old Slackware way even if it takes 3x longer than carry on with the Debian wizard that has gone haywire.

I forgot to mention that it starts DHCP on IPv6 first then on IPv4

So it seems you did find a solution. Would you care to share with us what the solution was? Thanks.

OK old thread but I am baffled by the fact that NOBODY told the QP to do an NSLOOKUP on another computer (or the same computer on his Windows partition) of one of the mirrors to find the IP-address. Then manually enter that IP as the chosen mirror...

stormybook:~ stormychel$ nslookup ftp.belnet.be
Server: 192.168.2.1
Address: 192.168.2.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
ftp.belnet.be canonical name = barbar.belnet.be.
Name: barbar.belnet.be
Address: 193.190.67.98

Mirror issues

Hello.
Try to add this in your ubuntu.cfg PXE deployment kickstart (Applies to Ubuntu focal):

d-i mirror/country string manual
d-i mirror/http/hostname string archive.ubuntu.com
d-i mirror/http/directory string /ubuntu
d-i mirror/http/proxy string
d-i mirror/codename string focal

It solved the mirror issue I used to have.

info

At the configure the package manager step you should select (in top of the country mirror list):

enter information manually
Then select a debian mirror from here , for example:

archive.debian.org
Then the Debian mirror directory:

/debian/
You should ignore the next error saying :

security.debian.org couldn't be accessed
because there is no security updates for debian Lenny.

Unsurprisingly since this question was asked in 2014, and by now Lenny has been EOL for 9 years.
