During the entire setup screen, the debian installer did not asked me

Support pages mention that installer will ask for other part of the DVD
as an option. It never asked, only driver cd/dvd was asked.
Just wondering that did I missed something?
The Debian installer does not know how many CDs or DVD there are nor
what they contain.
I remember that, after scanning the first installation disk, the Debian
installer used to ask whether I wanted to scan other disks. I have not
seen that option for a long time. Maybe it is available only when
booting from a real optical disk instead of a USB drive.
Also I installed with Sudo option (no root account), will this be of any
disadvantage at anytime in future over Sudo considering I'm not a power
Yes. It will be a disadvantage if you need to log in directly as root to
fix things when log in as a normal user does not work any more (e.g.
/home filesystem full or mounted read-only or could not be mounted, or
corrupted user profile).
There is just one downside I know of: if the system panics on boot,
e.g. because it can't mount the root file system (say, because it's
corrupted), it will ask you for the root password before giving you
a root shell
Of course not. If the initramfs cannot mount the root filesystem, it
cannot read /etc/shadow and check the root password. It just drops a
The root password is asked when booting in emergency mode, either when
selecting a "rescue" entry in the boot loader or when something went
wrong during the init phase, e.g. a filesystem listed in /etc/fstab
could not be mounted.
