I am eager to run Debian straight from disk rather than through a VM although I am having trouble getting the install to work. The installation fails at the step "Install the system"

The installation ISO I am using is: debian-9.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso althought I have also tried the same process with debian-9.6.0-amd-DVD1.iso

I am burning the disk image to a usb drive and then want to use that as the installer to install on to my (only) internal hard drive (SSD)

Hardware specs: SSD(that I am trying to install to) - Samsung 860 EVO SATA3 250gb, Motherboard - MSI c236m, Processor - Xeon E3-1220 v5 3.00GHz 4 core, Graphics - AMD radeon HD 6900

  • I am sorry, I can't think of anything else. I was going to ask how much ram it has, but the min req. is only 512MB, so you know. You have to have that and spades. Good Luck. – Michael Prokopec Nov 23 '18 at 4:36

  • Try to change console when installation will be failed (Ctrl+Alt+F2 or Ctrl+Alt+F3) one of them have installation logs, it may get a clue what's gone wrong. – IvanBayan Nov 23 '18 at 6:32
