This is tricky. I would like to install Ubuntu on a machine that is intended to work as server, and for some reason I do not have an option to connect a screen to it.
I expect this may be similar to remote installation. However, there is currently no OS on that machine, so I will have to set up everything from scratch.
On the other hand, I do have a physical access to that machine. Therefore I can get it to boot from a CD/USB. But that's not enough.
Is there a way to do such installation remotely? Is there a version of Ubuntu image that comes with a SSH server preinstalled, and starts it once booted, so that I can boot the machine with such image, connect to it via SSH and process the installation from a different computer?
If not, what other options do I have?
