Some Linux distributions is lack of installation script, like Gentoo or Arch. Everything can be done by hand (partitioning disk, making filesystems, installing, etc). The questions is:

Is it possible to install Ubuntu in that way?

I'm making some tests with Ubuntu and I want to install Ubuntu Server in mounted disk image file. But installer can't skip disk partition step.


Using debootstrap I can install system in image file with command:

debootstrap --arch i386 trusty /mnt/imagefile/ http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/

thx @muru
