My query is how to save it ?

IIRC, CTRL+SHIFT+F1 or one of the Function keys does take you to the
console mode.

Usually, whether it's 200 MB, 700 MB or 4.4 GiB ISO, afaik the usb
disk takes the full space.

One more thing, while I'm sure reportbug is there in the 4.4 GIB .iso image.

it doesn't seem to be either in the netinstall nor in the 700 MB 1st CD image

[$] wget http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/list-cd/debian-8.7.1-amd64-CD-1.list.gz

[$] zless debian-8.7.1-amd64-CD-1.list.gz

/ reportbug_6.6.3_all

Trying either reportbug_6.6.3_all.deb or reportbug_6.6.3_all.udeb
shows as pattern not found.

Am I missing something ?

Looking forward to know more.
