The installation in Graphic mode after the language, country and locales stops because cannot find the CD.
It is not clear what is such "CD"? All installation software isn't in the debian-9.9.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso file loaded on the USB pen drive?

Googled a lot, it seems most of people face a lot of trouble with Debian installation but no solutions available.
Is this Debian only for very expert users? I'm Using UBUNTU since 2012, even when I was a complete newbie I succeed into dual boot installation,
With Debian it seems I have to spend months for learning very advanced knowledge or gathering information.
I understood Debian was an operating  system accessible to everybody not dedicated to very specialized Information technology people only.
