Debian on CD

Debian on CDs/DVDs

If you want to obtain Debian on CD/DVD or USB stick, see below for the available options. In case of problems, please check the FAQ about Debian CDs/DVDs.

If you simply want to install Debian and have an Internet connection on the target computer please consider the Network Install media which is a smaller download.

On i386 and amd64 architectures, all CD/DVD images can be used on a USB stick too.

Official CD/DVD releases are signed so that you can verify they are authentic.

Debian is available for different computer architectures - make sure you are getting images that match your computer! (Most people will need images for amd64, i.e. 64-bit PC-compatible systems.) Once you have created your own discs, you might be interested in the artwork for covers of Debian discs.

Latest official release of the "stable" CD/DVD images: 12.5.0.
(Snapshots of the "testing" distribution are created weekly.)

Information about known installation issues can be found on the installation information page.
