After I chose the mirror (I tried several and also tried to chose
stable and sid instead of testing via priority=medium) I am shown a
No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch
between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the
kernel version available in the archive.
If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem
by choosing to install a different version of Debian.
The install will probably fail to work if you continue without
kernel modules. Continue the install without loading kernel modules?
In the console at Alt-F4 I found the line:
"anna WARNING **: no packages for kernel in archive"
I haven't changed any settings, merely followed the instructions at
and used the daily images.
Please avoid sending me Word, Excel or PowerPoint attachments.
