Important Notes

Special instructions for PXE

I used Debian netboot and PXE to run the installer as the laptop doesn't have a CD drive, and I don't have any external USB drives.

You have turn off secure boot in the BIOS. Otherwise the PXE loader will complain about that the boot image is not signed: "Invalid signature detected check secure boot policy in setup". The only keys it recognizes are from Microsoft.

Also, the default image for Debian netboot only works on older BIOSes and isn't right format for new UEFI systems. So, replace pxelinux.0 with the AMD 64 efi image: debian-installer/amd64/bootnetx64.efi

I used an Ubuntu system running tftpd-hpa to serve the boot image, and a router running DD-WRT to configure dhcp for PXE. The rest of the netboot install worked according to the documentation.

SSD Setup

The laptop has two SSDs and comes with RAID0 set up in the BIOS so they appear as one drive. However, grub doesn't support booting a RAID0 device, according to some posts I found. I was able to mount the disks and configure the partitions etc. from the installer, but grub would refuse to install with an error like, "disk mduuidxxxxxxxx not found". Eventually, I just gave up and deleted the RAID array in the BIOS.

Ethernet

The network card driver isn't included in the Debian stable installer, however the driver in testing works fine during install.
