Booting from CD/DVD

First, download (or otherwise obtain) the ISO disk image and burn it to a blank CD:

  $ jigdo-lite
  jigdo [...]: http://ftp.acc.umu.se/cdimage/release
  $ cdrecord -data debian-40r0-amd64-DVD-1.iso

See Section 3.6.2 for further details.

Place the CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive and turn the computer on. Ensure your computer has booting from CD-ROM enabled (this may be a function of the BIOS so you may need to go into the BIOS setup program at boot time, or else, on Dell computers, press the F12 function key to see a Boot Options menu).

Once you have booted from the DVD you will see the Debian logo and will be be asked to press Enter to boot Debian--do so.
