Hi Connor,

As I recall, the last time I tried to install Debian SID from the Debian
installer CD, it did not recognize my CD drive (despite having just
booted the CD from that drive). So I copied the entire installation CD
to a spare 1 GB disk (something like "dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/dev/sdb
bs=64k"). I was then able to boot from that disk and proceeded to a full
installation. My existing installation was Debian 7.8, which was able to
recognize the CD drive.
