This may not help at all because things may have changed in the last
couple of months, but I'll give it a larrup.

I don't know what the "standard instructions" are?

If you can install wheezy with a minimum install, no packages other
than what you need to get a bootable system, and you're doing a net

By only installing the minimum packages on the install of wheezy, you
don't get a lot of stuff left behind from the change to jessie.

On the reboot ***after*** removing the CD/USB stick or whatever, just go
into your /etc/apt/sources.list and change every instance of wheezy to

Save the file and the do an apt-get update  and  apt-get upgrade. When
this is complete and everything is configured. Reboot.

Should then be fine.

Like I say: if nothing has changed in the last couple of months since I
installed a jessie system on a clean machine. This way has always worked
for me in the past, but your mileage may vary.

Best of luck,
