Because I was just doing a one-off install of Workstation on my new
laptop and probably won't use the USB stick again (without updating to
a newer version), I chose the Workstation Netinstall. And... the wifi
didn't work, because iwl7260-firmware wasn't installed. After a brief
moment of puzzlement, I shrugged and went to the full CD.
I understand that these probably aren't needed on the server
netinstall, in the interest of keeping it small, but what about
My opinion is workstation netinstall definitely needs wifi firmware.
Many, maybe even most laptops these days don't have wired ethernet
anymore. Since all the netinstallers are predicated off one boot.img,
all of the product netinstalls would get this firmware.
