debian-9.6.0-amd64-netinst-over-ssh.iso (291M) - remastered USB compatible version of Debian 9 ISO. Ready to flash to your USB. UEFI and BIOS compatible
Seriously, Debian guides on the web are misleading and outdated
MAAS - is some Ubuntu/CentOS bullshit not capable of remotely installing Debian out of the box.
It's actually a PXE server but they don't say it straight. You have to go through incomprehensible marketing bullshit and taste it yourself
It only allows you to boot a distro over PXE, and if you have a proper ISO, then MAAS will automatically install it. Turns out that there are not too many available..
Here's some guide that I did not work for me. It's useless anyway so whatever...
it turns out that there are 2 bootloaders on debian ISO
Info on how badly is it fucked up is here
TL;DR GRUB and ISOLINUX are both used in Ubuntu live CD for exclusive reasons; Both were included in live CD for better boot experience and hardware support.
xorrisobut nothing else. and is so fucking complex
reading debian installer manual carefully - Debian GNU/Linux Installation Guide
WHAAAAT? Are you insane???! This manual is not easily consumable by humans. But yeah, I went through it. Especially this part was important. Buy me a beer
Brb, need to get a coffe first
