Let's try to fix this over mail first. I am assuming this is UEFI on
the x86_64, if this is BIOS or on another architecture, say something.
Which version of Debian was this? (Number and name.) What hardware is
this running on? (Laptop, desktop, Pi, make and model#, disks and other
pieces connected, etcetera.) Is this just running Debian, or is it
multi-boot? When you try to boot the thing, what is the last message
that is displayed before the system freezes? Take a picture of the
monitor with your camera, upload it to your website, and follow up to
this message with a link to that JPEG. That's a bit easier than trying
to transcribe a big screen of text.
Also, "Help needed" is not a good Subject: line. "Debian X.Y install
won't boot on a $THING" would've been better. You should be as specific
as possible in the Subject: line of a mail for maximum utility. Please
follow up, Hope That Helps,
