"There are two different netinst CD images which can be used to install
squeeze with the
debian-installer. These images are intended to boot from CD
and install additional packages over a network, hence the name 'netinst'.
The difference between the two images is that on the full netinst image
the base packages are included, whereas you have to download these from
the web if you are using the business card image. If you'd rather, you can
get a full size CD image which will not need the network to install. You
only need the first CD of the set.
I am trying to install Debian wheezy in VMWare Fusion 4.1.2 on Mac OS X 10.7.4.
I downloaded debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso (on 13. may 12) and configured Fusion to use this iso image as a cd drive.
When I power up the virtual machine, a blinking cursor in the upper left corner of the screen is showing up and nothing else happens.
When I do the same thing with debian-6.0.4-amd64-netinst.iso (squeeze), the installer comes up and everything works as expected.
(btw I burned a cd from the wheezy iso image and tried it in a Dell desktop, with the same result: nothing happens.)
What am I doing the wrong way?
Thanks for any help
