I would like to install Debian 64 bits on my 16 GB USB as a persistent, so that i can download packages and install python, c, Python, etc. and learn some new skills without giving up on Windows straight away.
I downloaded 3.4GB iso and tried to install it with Universal USB installer. But Universal USB installer is not taking that iso file and was only taking netinst.iso. So, I downloaded 260MB netinst iso but i found out that it will install from the net but when i booted, it didnt work and was not able to connect to my Wi-Fi or ethernet connection. Now I am stuck.
So, my probelms are:
1) I want to install Debian 8 on 16GB USB
2) I want to keep using Windows 7 till i get comfortable with Debian
3) I want a persistant install so that I can save my work and download softwares and packages on my laptop.
