Please stop speading misinformation about how Debian is installed.

Official way to install Debian is using debian-installer, also for 
boards using U-boot.  See e.g. the user notes for Allwinner-based boards 

It is true that you can leave it to others to prepare an installation 
for you, so that you only need to dump their pre-installed image onto 
your boot disk device - e.g. as done with the preview image for 
Raspberry Pi offered at https://wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi3.

It is also true that you can have others make a derivative of Debian and 
offer you that as a pre-installed image - e.g. as done by Raspbian and 
Armbian projects.

The "crap" you get using unofficial pre-installed images is not on 
Debian but on those pre-installing and on you using those instead of
