I was looking into remastering ubuntu and this one seems promising so will it work?

  • Do be aware that support for 14.10 ends in July of this year. It might be more fruitful to remaster a 15.04 or 14.04 version. – Rinzwind May 21 '15 at 14:05
  • Ok I will install 15.04... – nerd7473 May 21 '15 at 14:06

The question needs to be reversed: does Ubuntu Builder support Ubuntu 14.10

And the answer is probably no since Ubuntu Builder was discontinued around 2014-02-12 or it might be yes, with limited support. ubuntu builder alternative or replacement suggests Ubuntu Customization Kit

Might I offer a solution that will always work? Use the manual method and forget about tools like Ubuntu Builder. It will teach you a lot about the inner workings of an operating system and it will also make it possible for you to investigate alterations you want to make where a tool like Ubuntu Builder will restrict you to what the tool can offer.

I have written an example based of Ubuntu Server: How to create a Customized Ubuntu Server ISO? That will allow you to pick your own desktop or desktops if you want more than 1. Or make your own server based install. Imagine a live dvd with apache, mysql, php pre-installed but also that website you made all ready to go from the Live DVD with a shortcut on the desktop to that website and/or pre-made documents about that website.

And we also have How to customize the Ubuntu Live CD? that is about editing an Ubuntu with already a desktop in the Live DVD.

  • I am using 14.10 by the way would like to use 15.04 instead of 14.10 so I will have systemd without having to add it... – nerd7473 May 21 '15 at 15:28
  • Is there a way to do this without server? – nerd7473 May 23 '15 at 4:42
