Bug#827828: Package: installation-reports

Package: installation-reports

Hi there, 
I would like to mention a kind of bug in your net-install iso image.

When tried to install Debian on my net book (Toshiba Radius 11 L10WC10C) using the debian-8.5.0-amd64-netinst.iso image i got the following error:

Installer was prompting me to provide proprietary drivers for rtlwifi/rtl8723befw.bin.

As a new user that i thought to try Debian, i didn't had this driver to feed the installer and as a resut the installation made was a basic one without internet connection.

Although i succeed to find this driver on web, i was not capable to make the installer load this rtl8723 driver. 
Maybe a kind of typical file browser within the Debian Installer could be a good idea, to allow me to drive Debian Installer to where this driver file is.

On the other hand consider a new user trying to test Debian, and the whole thing collapses for a missing driver (while other distros like Ubuntu provide that driver out-of-the-box).
