I have installed and reinstalled debian on this system many times today. Upon booting, it always says the same thing. It says this:

/dev/sda5: clean, 143400/7118848 files, 1589762/28448256 blocks

I've let it sit up to 30 minutes and it stays here. I've tried going into different terminals but it doesn't work. I cannot boot into recovery mode as it also stops at a point. Anyone know what the problem could be?

 

Version: Debian 9.1 amd64 (it is a 64 bit computer)

I have installed and reinstalled debian on this system

What is this system?

 

Is this a Dual Boot?

 

Can you please post a Speccy, inxi -Fxz or sudo lshw -short.

Yes it is a dual boot. I fixed it by installing with the unofficial that includes non-free as i was missing firmware

This is the one that works:

 

http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/9.1.0-live+nonfree/amd64/iso-hybrid/ (the gnome one) 

 

This was the original:

 

http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/amd64/iso-cd/

Yeah, there is no installation files on that first link you used. Which file did you download from the second link?

I believe you are mistaken. There are installation files on both links. Scroll down (debian-9.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso). Also on the second link (the one that worked) i used the gnome one (labeled it in parantheses but i guess you didnt see it debian-live-9.1.0-amd64-gnome+nonfree.iso)

OK, you're talking about the ISO image that requires an internet connection to install. I never use those, I only use the ISO images that are complete.

The one big limitation to using that type of ISO image is that you can never create a "live" USB. Because the install media depends on an internet connection to download the Linux kernel during install, it is not a complete operating system and thus can never be used to create a live USB stick.
