Okay, I'm going to remove 2019-04-24 because people seem to ignore the
note 00-IMAGES_BROKEN at the top. The images from 2019-04-24 are known
to be broken and should therefore not be used. They were never announced
and just uploaded for testing purposes. I am going to delete them now.

Just don't use any of the snapshot images (the ones with a date) but the
one listed the 10.0 directory:

You should probably boot the machine with "nomodeset" on the command line. Also,
it would be help if we knew the exact model number so we know what kind of graphics
hardware is used.

This is not how a valid sources list looks like, the syntax is wrong and
therefore cannot work.

A proper sources.list looks like this:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main

No, the problem is your sources.list is broken :).
