I am using Wheezy but I need to compile the kernel in order to use the
version 3.6.3 because the kernel 3.2 crashes with the intel HD 4000.

I am using an Intel Core i7. Should I compile the kernel for the
processor "Generic-x86-64" or for the "Core 2/newer Xeon"

I am using an Intel Core i7 too
I compile kernels with 'Core 2/newer Xeon'

But when I take a look to Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors The
i7 does not seem to be in the family of the Core 2 or the Xeon.
Probably this basic stuff but I am confused with so many families of

'Core 2/ NEWER Xeon'
=> core 2 or newer
=> or xeon
Anyway, it works for me
