I want to run an unattended installation of a remastered edubuntu 11.10.
I edited the example-preseed.txt file at https://help.ubuntu.com/11.10/installation-guide/example-preseed.txt
, saved it as preseed.cfg in the root folder of the cd and added the following to isolinux.cfg:
menu label autoinstall - unattend install ubuntu
append file=/cdrom/preseed.cfg boot=casper only-ubiquity initrd=/casper/initrd.gz --
I re-created the iso using mkisofs as follows:
mkisofs -D -r -V “edubuntu-custom” -cache-inodes -J -l -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o ~/autoinstall.iso ~/edubuntu_files
When I ran the cd and chose the autoinstall option it appeared to be installing unattended but after about a minute the usual attended installation started.
How can I perform an unattended installation of a remastered edubuntu image?
Thank you in advance.
