I have a PC without a CD ROM drive. I have a connection with Orange 3G, using a Huawei E1752 device. I want to install Debian on my hard drive from a 15BG USB Disk. I tried with Debian Live but that does not give you an option to install Debian on your hard disk.

So is it possible to install Debian with a desktop environment (GNOME or KDE) on my drive that would work like this?

  • create a bootalbe USB containing Debian NetInstall
  • start this USB Debian NetInstall
  • install the 3G Huawei E1752 Orange with the command line
  • connect to the Internet
  • install and update GNOME or KDE from the Internet.
