unable to finish debian-installer
I'm trying to install debian on an old laptop (compaq armada 1750). It
was running Windows 2000. I have no option of booting from an other
media except the harddrive.
So i used the win32-loader.exe to start the install.
The install process went fine up to installing extra software. When
installing extra software the progress bar remained at 1%. The log
showed an error regarding no aptitude found.
Probably the installer went wrong earlier. I saw several entries of
'apt-install or in-install' already running.
I re-downloaded the installer-components, detect network again, did
partition again but no luck.
I went into chroot /target and installed aptitude, the kernel and
grup-pc, but grub-install failed, because of no devices present.
After that i did a lot more, basically just screwing the installer up i
Can't finish the installer with a working minimal environment (kernel
and grub installed). And i have no way of booting another media, because
windows has been erased.
But i'm still in the debian-installer (text) environment.
Are there any options, to get to a minimal install? I think it should be
possible, but how...
Hopefully i can provide additional extra info if needed.
With kind regards,
