Same here.

My last install with an USB stick (2 months ago) must have been as
easy as dd'ing or cat'ing the ISO to a device since I don't remember
any details or even problems, and I'm quite sure I didn't hunt down
any additional files or used any non-standard tools.

(I think it was a testing image from February or something similar,
in case they are different .... Ah, I still have it,
debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso, downloaded on March 4th.)
