Read this page: https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd.../i386/iso-dvd/

The DVD-3 iso is optional and not bootable.

You need to install Debian with debian-8.7.1-i386-DVD-1.iso

Aside from "you didn't read their instructions and booted from the wrong media", how can we tell?? Also, this seems VERY familiar:

RHEL 7: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175600418/
RHEL 6: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fi-4175581424/
Ubuntu: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tu-4175583159/
Lubuntu: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tu-4175582605/
Zorin: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...os-4175582335/
Mint: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nt-4175582225/

...and now Debian. Pretty similar questions for ALL of these distros, and you've been pointed to documentation and the "Question Guidelines" about how to ask a smart question MANY times. At what point are you going to do your own research?

Thank you for pointing this out.

There's nothing wrong with a user trying out several Linux distributions, in fact this would seem to be something we would encourage here at LQ.

The recommendations to all members offering advice for poor questions is to point to the question guidelines.

Also please note that members may have chosen to not view signatures, thus not being able to see all provided, helpful links.

If the member in question fails to follow up, then I feel the best guidance to follow is to not respond to their questions any further.

Hydrurga's response is absolutely correct, therefore one option I'd recommend would be to not add anything further to the thread.

@UMESHASNANI: With approximately 8 months of time in LQ and a number of threads started which all cite you trying new distributions and having some sort of problem with correct system operation, perhaps you really should take the time to review the Site FAQ and work towards making your questions more effective. I find it hard to believe that you're gaining much real help from your questions when I see that members have asked you for follow-up and you've not done that, then later created a new thread about a different distribution where you encounter similar technical problems. Seems more beneficial to try to debug a certain issue versus always try a new distribution.

Absolutely, and trying multiple distros should be something a new user should do, to find what fits best. However, the OP's posting history seems to fall squarely within the "Question Guidelines", even after being told by multiple users over the OP's tenure here, to read/follow them and to improve what they ask, and show effort.

Absolutely correct.
