    PXE image using apt-mirror

    I have always been able to pxe image using an extracted .iso, however now I am trying to point the imaging process towards an apt-mirror archive I have set up.

    The system boots into the kickstart file, grabs a dhcp IP, then dumps this error message.

    No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch 
    between the kernel version used by this version of the installer and the
    kernel version available in the archive.
    If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem
    by choosing to install a different version of Ubuntu. The install
    will probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules.
    Continue the install without kernel modules?

    I have tried the netboot files from both the server iso and the alternative iso. I even tried the netboot files from

    Everything dumps me to this error message. Does anyone have an idea of what files are not matching?

    Re: PXE image using apt-mirror

    I was able to solve this issue. I originally was only mirroring debian-installer for the "hardy" section, but from my apache logs during imaging process, I realized the pxe installer was looking for debian-installer in hardy-updates and hardy-security.

    deb-amd64 hardy main/debian-installer restricted/debian-installer universe/debian-installer multiverse/debian-installer
    deb-amd64 hardy-updates main/debian-installer restricted/debian-installer universe/debian-installer
    deb-amd64 hardy-security main/debian-installer restricted/debian-installer universe/debian-installer
    I had the first line. I had to add the two lines after and resync the mirror. Then it worked.

    NOTE: My mirror is using because they have a fast connection. Yours probably says or something.
