Installation media

Debian Edu ISOs for 64-bit and very old 32-bit PCs (both AMD and Intel processors) are available from the usual Debian places.

Download using HTTPS

The netinst iso image can be used for installation from CD/DVD and USB flash drives and is available for two Debian architectures: amd64 (64-bit) or i386 (32-bit). As the name implies, Internet access is required for the installation.

The BD images are 5.8 GB (amd64) / 5.9 GB (i386) large and can be used for installation of amd64 or i386 machines, also without access to the Internet. Like the netinst image it can be installed on USB flash drives or disk media of sufficient size.

Download using rsync

Also recommended to update an already existing image.

Unofficial images including non-free firmware - use only if really needed

Verify the downloaded image file

Detailed instructions for verifying these images are part of the Debian-CD FAQ.
