I'm trying to automate ubuntu 18.04 LTS Desktop installation using seed file, but unfortunately I'm unable to proceed futher after patitioning step while installation, as the window got hang.

Even I copy - paste entire "https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/example-preseed.txt" still the same problem

Below is the current configuration

d-i debian-installer/locale string en_US
d-i passwd/user-fullname string test host
d-i passwd/username string test
d-i passwd/user-password password ubuntutest
d-i passwd/user-password-again password ubuntutest
d-i partman-auto/method string lvm
d-i partman-lvm/device_remove_lvm boolean true
d-i partman-lvm/confirm boolean true
d-i partman-lvm/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true
tasksel tasksel/first multiselect ubuntu-desktop
d-i pkgsel/include string ssh vim build-essential  
d-i pkgsel/upgrade select none

I just mention the seed files in the boot params as auto url=

Here I'm testing on Virtual box.

Please suggest

  • how exactly are you proceeding? give us a step by step, if you have a script, show it to us so that we can understand the issue. – tatsu Jun 11 '19 at 15:08
  • Now i read this article and found that wiki.ubuntu.com/UbiquityAutomation tasksel, netcfg can't add in ubiquity installer. – user183980 Jun 11 '19 at 16:17
  • @tatsu there is no script, only I'm maintaining preseed file to answer for all installation question, then proceed with script. Also I see there were so many issues with ubiquity-installer , need to figure out this., d-i replaced by which params – user183980 Jun 11 '19 at 16:19
