(Transitioning from windows, not the most linux savvy yet, please handle with care)
I have been trying to install Debian on my Framework laptop, but it seems that the drivers arn’t working well with the networking hardware. I have also been looking aroung and heard that I heed to backport the kernel somehow. I’m not the most technical yet, as I’ve said, and I would really appreciate some pointers as to how to solve this problem. Here’s a list of hardware and steps I’ve already taken:
32 x 2 DDR4 -3200 SODIMM RAM (Crucial CT32G4SFD832A)
WD_BLACK 500GB SN770 NVMe (WDS500G3X0E)
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro (Couldn’t find the part nunber)
Intel® Core™ i5-1240P (12th gen)
Things that have happened:
Tried debian-11.6.0-amd64-netinst image on DD and ISO mode using rufus, failed to install, said that it required iwlwifi driver(s)
Tried debian-11.6.0-amd64-netinst+nonfree image on DD and ISO mode using rufus, failed to install, when encrypting it says it falils to copy the system
Tried the debian-live-11.6.0-amd64-gnome image, didn’t work of cource.
Tried the debian-live-11.6.0-amd64-gnome+nonfree image on ISO mode, didn’t install, failed to copy system.
Tried the debian-live-11.6.0-amd64-gnome+nonfree image on DD mode, sucsessfully installed.
tried to boot into the system got stuck up on these errors

Note 1: whenever I burned an image to a USB drive in DD mode, i wasn’t able to acess the filesystem after it was burned. Not sure if thats normal or not.
Note 2: I have already installed fedora and it worked fine. Didnt really want to use fedora though, so now we’re here.
If you could help me out by directing me in the right direction, I would really apprcate that. I really want to learn how linux works and want to make this my daily driver. Thanks in advance.
