I'm trying to install an old
ubuntu-10.04.4-server-amd64.iso on a custom machine, which uses a
vortex86 processor. The installation works fine, but it can't install a kernel.
"No installable Kernel was found in the defined APT sources"
I continued and finished the installation without installing a kernel.
Then I tried to switch to a virtual shell for executing
apt-install linux-image-generic (seen in this guide), but there's no package named so. The fun story is that with the
lubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso everything works well with the i386 image...! Now I've got a base system without kernel.
I've also got a custom package from the vendor: linux-image-188.8.131.52-vortex86-sg_1.3_i386.deb. But, there's a way to install this kernel without booting (like starting a live and chrooting on the target system)?
