This page is for user AugustinMa. I wish to install Debian on my current computer, but for some reason it doesn't work. This page is to collect my notes about figuring out what prevents me from installing Debian here. Parts of the content of this page may later be rewritten into another more general page that will be useful to other users later.
If you feel this page in inappropriate on this wiki, contact http:/www.masquilier.org/contact and I'll delete the page myself. Thanks.
I asked debian-user for help and received some general advice in reply. I am replying in details here.
Did you read the installation manual (the whole thing, not just the howto)?
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/index.html.en Doing so now, and making notes as I go along about stuff that might be useful.
