I want to use a customized version of Ubuntu packaged with remastersys on a machine that currently cant boot to USB or CD.
I have PXEBoot configured on the network and with the netboot archive downloaded from the Ubuntu mirrors I can get the system booting and running to a point where it attempts to connect to a local HTTP server.
The local HTTP server has been set up and the installation files are accessible.
However, the Netboot installation will not see this as a valid installation source. I assume this is because remastersys doesn't have all the files on its CD that the standard Ubuntu CD has? Either that or there's a file required for the local mirror that I am not aware of.
I have been unsuccessful in the search to find documentation on network installs of systems customized and / or packaged using Remastersys.
The error is below: Sorry if this is not completely accurate.
Choose a mirror of the Ubuntu archive
An error has been detected while trying to use the specified Ubuntu archive mirror.
Possible reasons for the error are: Incorrect mirror specified; mirror is not available (possibly due to an unreliable network connection); mirror is broken( for example because an invalid Release file was found); Mirror does not support the correct Ubuntu version
Additional details may be available in /var/log/syslog or on virtual console 4.
Please check the specified mirror or try a different one.
I looked at the console and the error log. They didn't provide any useful information.
Do any of you have any ideas?
