View Full Version : [ubuntu] add nomodeset to unattended installs

October 5th, 2010, 05:12 AM
Hi all,

I have a problem for Server installations of Lucid which is resolved by the thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9308664&postcount=13

My question is can I make an ISO which includes the fix so other people do not have to make this change. Our users will not always be technical so anything we can automate is a good thing. The hardware is fixed so this would be a great solution and for 50+ installs might reduce some disappointment.

I have read about preseeding but this appears to be about answering questions which are asked. You are never asked for additional kernel parameters for the install so I don't think this will help.

What I want to do is stick the CD in and have the fresh install be default have the nomodeset set.

Thanks all,
