Thanks.  Well, the iso file simply wasn't present.  Now I have this.

root@joule:/mnt# md5sum !$
md5sum {d*,i*,v*}
f327723426dc90a4daaf1609595d8306  debian-10.6.0-i386-netinst.iso
d3f41e1b683fa87cca189f8595b80a7c  initrd.gz
b30966bc534a606bb8dafab40e106ca9  vmlinuz

Files match but the search still failed.

Apologies for the snapshot but it serves the purpose.

To me, the most relevant notes are "missing firmware" and "devices found: ''".
An old magnetic HDD should be detected by a driver without fancy firmware. 

That leaves "devices found: ''" while files are in (hd0,msdos7).  Does 
the search algorithm work for an extended part?  Ref. 

Depending on replies, I might try the files in (hd1,1).

Thx,                                 ... P.
