To get the smallest possible system, follow the instructions you linked to, but specify --variant=minbase on the debootstrap command line. This will install only apt, essential packages and their dependencies. You will always end up with packages not flagged as "Essential": some of the dependencies of essential packages aren't themselves "Essential" (they ...

You are not booted in EFI-mode. Can you disable Secure Boot -- it could be falling back to "Legacy" mode in the absence of a correctly signed kernel image and bootloader. And if you have already disabled Secure Boot, this means that you motherboard do not allow UEFI. The reason why this step is vital is that Legacy boot use MBR and UEFI mostly use ESP. So, ...

You can't! Building and installing are two different things, the machine you build on must be uefi capable. If you want to use/install linux on uefi capable hardware gpt must already exist. You can build gpt/mbr on uefi but not both if your hardware uses old bios.

Thanks all on this thread... For debian-8.4.0-i386-CD-1.iso (32bits), installing on an old Toshiba Dynabook Satellite J40 (Pentium M 2GHz, single core) FROM the CDROM (700MB) disk and using the preseed file on an USB KEY, I succeed first, by following the advice to gain the terminal (BusyBox) using Ctrl + Alt + F2, with the "rootdelay=90"...

Configure Linux os, for example Kali or Ubuntu for my needs. That's out of the scope of a single (or even reasonably few) answer(s). Then encrypt the WHOLE bootable USB drive. If it's not possible to encrypt the WHOLE USB drive, maybe leave just /boot partition decrypted. Rather obviously you can't encrypt the whole boot media, since ...

First of all, sorry for my english. Correct me please. I need to pratice more. It's possible. You can use too a Cloud Storage, Like Dropbox ou Google Drive to help. You can use the Yumi to create the multi boot device. But you will not have persistent storage with it. So you can use Universal USB Installer to create a single OS boot but with persistent ...

Solution was to create the image in the openSUSE VM using SUSE Studio Image Writer, instead of ImageUSB, as the Windows program does not appear to image the ISO correctly. SUSE Studio Image Writer created a clean openSUSE installation and booted to it without issue.

If the regular kernel boots and supports at least the hard disk controller, you can also place the required packages on a local server, using a tool such as reprepro or apt-ftparchive to create the correct Packages and Release files, and use the installer's expert mode to add the server as an additional package source. Because you are in expert mode, the ...

The Wheezy changelog lists all the package updates in each point release. This shows that Debian 7.7 was released with 3.2.63-2, while Debian 7.8 was released with version 3.2.65-1. So you won't find an installer image with the exact version you're looking for. But you can find the relevant kernel packages in the snapshots; this will allow you to install ...
