Thi shappened on a different machine than the one I write this report
from (obviously, thus removed the logs below).

Today I attempted to install Debian bookworm on a brand new Lenovo
IdeaPad 5 14IAL7 with an i5-1235U CPU, 16GB RAM and 512GB SDD.

The installation failed to proceed at the network card detection
stage. Apparently, the machine has a Realtek RTL8852BE adapter, which
*should* be supported by recent kernels. However, the installer
presented me with a list of kernel modules to choose from. I went
through the list and selected anything that even remotely matched the
adapter name, but without success. Since I only had downloaded the
netinst image, I had to quit the installation proess at this point.
