I downloaded Debian Buster a week or so back to use live on usb with persistence ; Debian is community driven with ethos for free software. I noted there is an iso missing wifi drivers and another one called "with none free" i.e it has the wifi drivers. Do you remember which one you downloaded. With an ethernet connection solution ( i'm guessing since wifi and power flaky here so no time to look at image) will be to enable none free repo in your mirror list

You can just select no and then continue the installation, afterwards you can just enable the non-free repository and then install the wifi drivers using the an ethernet connection.

If you want to install any non-free package maintained by Debian, you need to enable contrib and non-free repositories. To do so, open /etc/apt/sources.list with a text editor, and append "contrib non-free" to each source.

The following is an example of /etc/apt/sources.list for Debian 10 "buster" Release.

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates main contrib non-free

then run

Code:
sudo apt update
Code:
sudo apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree
your machine will need to be connected via Ethernet cable first
