This is my first time attempting to install
debian and I am getting an error.
The following is how I went about downloading & installing:
I first downloaded the image file from: here (dvd, amd64 - because my processor is an: i7-4790K )
I then burned the .iso file to a cd using
this tool (with the slowest option: 4x).
Finally I went in to my
bios and and changed the boot priority to boot from
cd / dvd first.
When I rebooted my pc I was prompted with the install wizard
But if I select either
Graphical install or
Install I get the following:
Thanks for the helpful comments.
I checked my
bios version and sure enough it was quite outdated compared to the newer available versions.
(my motherboard is the: Z97 Gaming 9 ACK - and my bios version is Click BIOS 4 V1.10 )
Unfortunately I cannot update it yet as it requires a USB which I actually don't have right now.
In the meantime I tried burning
Mint to the
cd and booted that, but the exact same error appears.
Also, I tried turning off
acpi by adding
pci=noacpi but unfortunately it still gives me the error.
UPDATE 2 So i finally managed to get my hands on a USB stick.
I successfully updated my bios but unfortunately i'm still getting the SATA device failing IDENTIFY PACKET error.
Furthermore since i now had a USB i tried disconnecting my cd / dvd drive (which was the device connected to the 8th SATA port) and boot from the USB instead. To my surprise this actually worked...with a "small" problem unfortunatly.
Basically after booting from the USB everything is suuuper slow and laggy.
The mouse is actually pretty responsive and changes its icon and such just fine, but every time i try to interact with the Desktop environment it is insanely slow (pressing keys or opening folderes, or even just hovering over stuff takes several seconds to register). This could be unrelated but i would appreciate it if someone knows how to fix it.
