I went through the Debian website www.debian.org, but I couldn't find any iso to run the system with terminal (operating system should have a Debian core). The iso file should be completely standalone.

  • See also lubuntu (debian package based) – JJoao Dec 18 '17 at 14:41
  • I had a look, the smallest official ISO (apart from netinstall) for Debian 9 is the XFCE CD at 650M. The live images are all DVD size. I believe there used to be smaller images of "Debian Standard" (no graphical interface), but they appear to have stopped. Beyond that, this question is too broad for us to answer here, sorry. It doesn't define what you would consider to be an acceptable broadening of your terms. – sourcejedi Dec 18 '17 at 16:38
  • It looks like if 650M is too big, you're really out of luck for an ISO nowadays. Find alternatives. – sourcejedi Dec 18 '17 at 16:41

You’ll find the network installation images (the smallest images) here.

If the device you’re installing on needs firmware, you’ll find it easier to use one of the unofficial images here (these are still built on Debian’s infrastructure, they’re unofficial because they don’t satisfy Debian’s Free Software Guidelines).

  • I am looking for just basic Debian iso without extra package's – user9109574 Dec 18 '17 at 16:46
  • The smallest standalone image you can get is the XFCE CD. The network installation image is the smallest directly-usable image, but it requires an Internet connection. There’s no such thing as “extra packages” in Debian, packages are either part of Debian or they aren’t... – Stephen Kitt Dec 18 '17 at 16:52
  • I just need basic files to run a desktop ( because of bandwidth issues in my area ) – user9109574 Dec 18 '17 at 16:58
  • Get the network installation image then, that will ensure you use as little bandwidth as possible (assuming you’re not going to install it several times). – Stephen Kitt Dec 18 '17 at 16:59
  • Any alternative ( standalone would be great ) – user9109574 Dec 18 '17 at 17:02
