I am pretty new to Ubuntu and Linux. I have spent a lot of time trying to get an unattended install up and running for my Headless Server.

As it stands I have everything almost there but when testing on VirtuaBox my install asks a question at partitioning 'Write the Changes to the Disks ?'

My Preseed looks like this

# echo 'd-i partman/confirm_write_new_label boolean true
d-i partman/choose_partition \
select Finish partitioning and write changes to disk
d-i partman/confirm boolean trued-i partman/confirm_write_new_label boolean true' > ks.preseed

I could really use some help on this. So close now
