debian-8.7.1-amd64-CD-1.iso

The reason I bring this up is because people in support groups and forums as about why they didn't get a desktop environment, even when they use that specific CD.

Hello,

I think your download page should clarify that the user should select YES to
the Mirrors question or else no graphical desktop environment can be
installed, thus leaving the user with a console-only system. The installer
has a box to install a graphical environment and common system tools, so the
user is confused why no graphical environment is installed despite the box
being selected. However if one selects YES to the Mirrors question then of
course the available desktop environments appear along with this setting.

An alternate solution might be to put the notice in the Installer itself.

Naturally this affects the CD builds.
Which CD did you use for your installation?
