If the image doesn't have the icon, it probably (but not
certainly) doesn't have the installer.

That's OK, if you've got network access from the live system.

(If you don't have network access, go copy a Debian install DVD
to the SD card and boot from that.)

Assuming your network is networking:

sudo apt-get install debian-installer-launcher

... 

and after a bit, you should be able to start
debian-installer-launcher from the menu.
