Subject: Boot error with 11-17-2019 iso
Date: Wed, 20 Nov 2019 23:34:03 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Trying to install the latest iso (11/17) for testing and it appears that the kernel included with the iso and the kernel modules on the iso are mismatched.

   │ No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch      │
   │ between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the      │

   │ If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem  │
   │ by choosing to install a different version of Debian. The install     │

The install fails at the disk partitioning when it’s unable to find the MD module.
