I have an old laptop which runs Windows 7 and Linux Mint perfectly. However, I do not seem to be able to install Debian into it. I tried lots of ways to install with USB stick but failed. Image was debian-update-8.5.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso.
DVD did not boot
Live CD failed because it asked for a CD even when the install started from usb
sudo dd if=/dev/sde1 of=debian.iso-> will not boot
sudo cat debian.iso > /dev/sde1-> access denied
- Netinstall stopped because of lack of network card drivers
- YUMI was not able to write to USB
- Unetbootin was able only to download a preselected image, not one with network drivers
- Rufus ... I don't remember what went wrong with it.
How do I install Debian into the laptop?
