View Full Version : [ubuntu] automatic installation with kickstart and syslinux.cfg 10.10

I am so close to the answer i think. My goal is to fully automate an entire Ubuntu installation off a usb flashdrive from start to finish. So, i did as this


guide said and i made a kickstart ks.cfg file that is used to automate an installation, as i'm sure many of u know.

The next step has infinitely confused me. To make the ks.cfg file boot automatically and startup an installation to my specifications.

from this link

I have found that editing the syslinux.cfg file in the syslinux directory on the usb can be used to load preseed file, which to my understanding serves the same purpose as a kickstart file.

How should i edit syslinux.cfg to achieve my ends? or am i totally off base here?
