Bug#457057: (no subject)

Hi Diego,

I am not sure if you mail reached the right audience - I received it
because I am subscribed to the "boot" package which is a library for the
R program for statistical computing, and has little to do with booting
or installing debian.

Nevertheless I feel sorry that you lost access to your Windows system. I
hope you will be able to restore all your personal data.

Best regards,

Johannes Ranke

>  I don't remember if the loading of the installer modules went well; hence the question mark. When setting up the network, I get an error message: "Network autoconfiguration failed". This may simply be due to the fact that I don't have an internet connection. When I try to install the base system, I get the following error messages: "Debootstrap Error" and "Failed to determine the codename for the release." Also, due in part to the non-intuitive nature of the installation instructions, I deleted part of Windows (enough so that I no longer had access to it) during the partitioning process.>
