We’re partying. At last and after many months of constant development, Debian 10 is finally stable. In other words, we have a new version of the universal operating system. It comes loaded with a lot of new features that we have summarized in this article. So in this post, I will show you how to install Debian 10, Buster. The process is quite simple, you will see.

Install Debian 10 Buster

To install Debian 10 Buster, you need to download it first. However, I like to use the ISO DVD of approximately 3.5 Gb. It is the most complete and helps us to perform installations when the internet connection is bad or absent.

Being a very new release, it is recommended to make the download using BitTorrent. For all this, visit the download section on the Debian website.

Afterward, you can record the image in flash memory. We made a post about that, so do not worry.

So, we can start.

First steps

Once you have entered the memo or DVD on the computer when you restart it will start to boot from it. You will see the first screen.

So, now comes the most complicated part of the installation. Disk partitioning.

Install Debian 10 – Disk Partitioning

First, you must select the partitioning method. You can use the guided method or define it manually. If you have an empty disk, it is best to use the first option. In the opposite case, it is best to do it manually. I choose the Manual option.

Briefly, I will explain. The partition is defined with the EXT4 file system. It will be mounted on / i.e. the root will be everything. If you have data, you can format it.

In the case of an empty disc. First, you will have to make the partitions and then configure it.
