I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 with no internet connection - and I'm going round in circles as I keep getting prompted for a mirror etc. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious...... I assume all I need is packaged in the iso? The machine I'm using has 2 network cards but I don't have internet connectivity.

-Additional info.

From the Ubuntu installer main menu I have:

  • Chosen a language - success

  • Configured the keyboard - success

  • Detected network hardware - success

  • Configure the network - success (no internet connection available)

  • Choose a mirror of the ubuntu archive - unsuccessful as have no internet connection

  • Download installer components - can't due to no internet connection

Not sure what to do next..... Do I have to Execute a shell and install that way and if so how?

Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Cheers Eliah - just wondering if it can be done. Thanks for the help. – AndyH Aug 7 '14 at 15:08
  • Thanks for the updated info. Which iso image did you download? – Eliah Kagan Aug 7 '14 at 17:27
  • ubuntu- 14.04.1 -server-amd64.iso – AndyH Aug 8 '14 at 7:58
  • I think the problem is specific to 14.04 as I recall earlier Ubuntu server images had options to continue the installation when no sources were available. – Styne666 Oct 30 '14 at 11:30
