 I am sorry if I came as rude.

Yes. I am aware of the debian images with firmware included. The
reason why I don't want to use that I think they are netinstall images
only. And being a student in developing country I am afraid I can't
manage the internet needed for the installation. So I would be
thankful if you could suggest away to have a firmware work with amd64
dvd1 iso (which I got from a friend)

Thank you.
