[solved] Debian 9.4.0 automatic installation (preseed.cfg)

Postby joe2017 » 2018-06-11 10:04

Hello everybody,

I try to integrate my own preseed.cfg file into my installation. For this purpose one should only write one entry in syslinux.cfg. However, everything I tried did not work.

Here the standard file (syslinux.cfg)
Code: Select all
DEFAULT loadconfig

LABEL loadconfig
  CONFIG /isolinux/isolinux.cfg
  APPEND /isolinux/


Actually, you should just put another parameter behind the APPEND line.
Code: Select all
DEFAULT loadconfig

LABEL loadconfig
  CONFIG /isolinux/isolinux.cfg
  APPEND /isolinux/ preseed/file=/hd-media/preseed.cfg


Unfortunately that does not work. Everything else I tried did not work. My preseed.cfg file is located on the ROOT level of the USB Installation Stick.

I solved the problem. I simply added the following to adtxt.cfg
Original file
Code: Select all
Automated install
   kernel /install.amd/vmlinuz
   append auto=true priority=critical vga=788 initrd=/install.amd/initrd.gz --- quiet


My file
Code: Select all
Automated install
   kernel /install.amd/vmlinuz
   append auto=true priority=critical vga=788 initrd=/install.amd/initrd.gz --- quiet  file=/cdrom/preseed.cfg


When I boot from my USB stick I choose advanced and automatic installation.
