Debian Installation + Missing Firmware

If you install debian and run into the message “Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate”, then the steps provided here will work.

The only difference I found was since my main PC is Windows 10, I couldn’t use dpkg-deb to extract the packages. However 7zip works as well (since they’re just a type of tar file).
