    Great. Does it support GPT partitioning on installation and using EFI GRUB?

    May be now I can build Debian live image with from testing and including this installer.

    Thanks for saying it's only the installer, but you should put a bold notice about that.

    There seem to be full images with that installer as well: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/je...amd64/iso-dvd/
    I couldn't find anything for a USB though. I don't like using DVDs.

    Salut,

    @shmerl

    You won't find any... Actualy, you just need to make a:

    Code:
    # cp debian.iso /dev/sdX  (your key)
    # sync
    Here:

    https://www.debian.org/releases/whee...h04s03.html.en

    It was one of the big goal to reach for the project before Wheezy being released.

    Code:

    It seems to be OK:

    "Note that the Debian Installer (D-I) for AMD64 testing/Jessie already correctly boots and installs on a computer with UEFI firmware, putting in a GUID partition table (GPT) on a raw drive in the process."

    I haven't tried it yet but you can create your GPT partition before trying to install. If the installer recognise it, it'll probably work.
    Be careful to not do that on disc already configure with DOS partitioning; I mean don't make it on a drive you are already using, use another empty one. Just to be sure, unpluged all your other drives and test it.

    Debian uses the hybrid-iso format by default, just use dd or cat to write the CD/DVD image to your USB device, no special USB version is needed.

    Ah, great. But they are split in 3 parts. I guess I need 3 USB sticks for that (unless 2 and 3 are really optional).

    Yes, the first one is enought. It have the most tipical software. The two others have more software, but it can be downloaded by internet when (and if) you install it.
