View Full Version : [ubuntu] PXE Network Installation

March 2nd, 2011, 09:08 PM
Hi everybody,

I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a old notebook booting from PXE (it is the only way I have).

I am following this article:

I succesfully booted in PXE and loaded the installation kernel.

I am using the KS functionality using ks.cfg script as follow:

## on the pxelinux.cfg/default
append ks= .....

##the ks.cg is
url --url is my DHCP server and TFTBOOT Server (it's another ubuntu 10.10)

I have mounted on /var/www/ubuntu/ the ISO of Ubuntu 10.10.

When I run firefox browsing i can reach booth the ks.cfg and the path and see all the stuff inside.

The problem is that during the installation I got an error saying that is impossible to download the installation files from the mirror.

Any suggestion will be really appreciated!
