Debian 11 (Bullseye) Graphical Expert Installation
This tutorial will teach you how to install Debian 11 Bullseye OS using the Graphical Expert installation process. Using this method allows you to define every detail of the Debian 11 OS you are installing. I always use this method so the Linux™ server is ready to use out of the starting gate and very few adjustments are needed afterward.
If you do not have any type of Debian 11 OS installation media you can refer to my tutorial Create A Bootable Debian 11 Installation Flash Drive which will show you how to create a bootable USB flash drive. Once you have your Debian 11 installation media, insert it into your server DVD drive or USB port and reboot the server to start the process. You may need to adjust your server’s BIOS settings or choose to use a boot menu to get the server booted into the Debian 11 installation media.
NOTE :This process will destroy everything that is currently stored on your server’s hard drive(s). Back up anything you want to save before starting this tutorial.
