Bug#1036038: debian-installer: Debian installer, graphical installer, live image, hang on Dell Inspiron 27

Hi Ernesto,

OK, all of that looks good to me. You could try and replace “quiet” with
“debug” on any entry to see if you're getting some error messages.

That really shouldn't be needed, we've been supporting Secure Boot for a
while. And yes, it's starting to be rather common for systems to come
without any support for BIOS/Legacy booting (and I kind of like the way
some hardware manufacturers are up-front about it, with a clear message
in their UEFI firmware interface).

At this stage, I'd suggest giving Bookworm a shot, e.g. using the D-I
Bookworm RC 2 installer. Or wait a few hours (maybe days), at which
point an RC 3 should become available.
