I have an old PC where I want to install Debian from "smaller CD" (up to 40mb, rest will be downloaded). I have made a bootable usb from this Debian.
The problem is, my computer is so old that it (bios) doesn't support booting from USB.
- I have some debian CD where I can run (rescue) shell from, but it's corrupted and I'm unable to install the whole Debian from it (fails on copying base system).
- I have also hiren's cd 14.0 which includes Parted Magic live linux with shell and other utilities
- I am not able to burn any other CD/DVD.
How can I run shell from any of these CDs and then boot usb to run installation from it?
