View Full Version : [all variants] [SOLVED] Is it possible to install Ubuntu using netboot without internet?

Good day, everyone!

I've set up netboot. Everytime I boot it, it prompts me to choose an internet server to fetch packages from. Here in Russia we've got no ability to use it as we pay for traffic. Is it possible to reconfigure the source so it could use the CD repos instead of the internet servers?

Thank you in advance!

Although this whole exercise looks rather pointless (for a single box), you can do this, guides can be googled.

It's not for a single box, mind you...
Got something (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LocalNet#A%20variation:%20Booting%20the%20%22Live% 20CD%22%20image), trying it now...

It worked, people!!! I'm typing this from LiveCD that I've booted over the network!!! It works waaaay faster, almost like a HD install! :cool:
