Yes that would probably do the trick.
I mean the Debian installer is great, there were just a few "cancel"
bugs (notably the reading of CDROMs) and to this day (also in Ubuntu)
any DVD you've used doesn't automatically get added to the apt database
which may have been the problem in my Debian 7 experience.
I was just reinstalling an older system and getting it back to 7 was an
old goal of mine :p.
