Installing with the Debian-Installer
For official Debian 12.5 installation media and information, see the bookworm page.
All images linked below are for the version of Debian Installer being
developed for the next Debian release and will install Debian testing
trixie) by default.
To install Debian testing, we recommend you use the daily builds of the installer. The following images are available for daily builds:
Current daily snapshots
- An architecture can be (temporarily) omitted from the overview of daily built images if daily builds are not (reliably) available.
- For the installation images, verification files (SHA512SUMS and SHA256SUMS) are available in the same directory as the images.
- For downloading full CD and DVD images the use of jigdo is recommended.
- Only a limited number of images from the full DVD sets are available as ISO files for direct download. Most users do not need all of the software available on all the discs, so to save space on download servers and mirrors the full sets are only available via jigdo.
After using the Debian-Installer, please send us an installation report, even if there weren't any problems.
If you read only one document before installing, read our Installation Howto, a quick walkthrough of the installation process. Other useful documentation includes:
- Installation Guide:
development version (testing)
latest version (Git)
detailed installation instructions
- Debian-Installer FAQ
and Debian-CD FAQ
common questions and answers
- Debian-Installer Wiki

The debian-boot mailing list is the main forum for discussion and work on Debian-Installer.
We also have an IRC channel, #debian-boot on irc.debian.org. This channel is used mainly for development, but occasionally for support. If you do not receive a response, try the mailing list instead.
