My system consists of a B550M AORUS PRO-P motherboard. I tried installing Debian Desktop 10.6 as a dual boot, but during the installation it doesn't recognize my Ethernet card.
I couldn't find the correct driver in the list during installation, so I choose for the option "none of the above". Then I was asked to place a removable device with the correct driver and so I did, but without luck. This is what I did: I downloaded the 2.5G Ethernet LINUX driver r8125 for kernel up to 5.6 and placed the software unpacked on a FAT formatted USB. I placed the USB in the system and moved on to the next step of the installation process. Unfortunately I received a message the system didn't recognize the removable device (or it just didn't recognize the software as a legit driver). Does the Debian installation need a .deb installation file of the driver?
I even tried the nonfree edition without success: Same error.
I was forced to continue the installation without a functional network driver, but now I need to configure and install everything by hand. I rather re-install Debian with the correct driver so Gnome etc. is all correctly installed.
