    Debian ISO

    Tried installing a debian 8 iso several different dvds they will not mount, yet ubuntu and others are recognized easily. Another reason to stay with Ubuntu. I do like to try other distros from time
    to time but darned if I could get debian to install.

    Since this looks like this will turn into a support thread, moved to Debian.

    Of the Debian DVDs only #1 will boot. #2 and #3 are meant as Repositories and do not boot. If you has a quick enough connection you do not need #2 and #3.

    FWIW, I have always used the netinstall for Debian.. You can find it here: https://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#smallcd

    +1, what I normally use (even though it must be the biggest "net" install image of any distro I have ever used)

    There is also a 3rd party net-install image with non-free firmware for WiFi hardware and GPUs.
