I’m struggling with running a Live USB Pen Drive with Debian 10.10 non-free iso in my Lenovo Ideapad S145. But trying with or without UEFI support can’t start the system. It stays halted on a black screen. I think this is probably because of lack of the video driver in the Live CD, but I’m not sure of.
Follow are the screens that maybe can help to find out why.
So this is the screen info.
Now, what I could extract from my current Ubuntu 20.20 installation about the video driver firmware.

modinfo i915, we can see that the current video driver has a GPL and additional rights license.
By the screens I posted here it seems is a problem with the i915 Intel driver. Could it be for another reason? Is there a way of running Debian 10.10 Live USB, or I will have to install Debian first without video support, and after that try to install the video driver?
