location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2013
I am doing Ubuntu 12.10 Auto install, where am using preseed file passed via network (http), and a install repository available on local web server. (http://192.168.1.100/image/ubuntu121...dvd/repository)
Installation failed saying "Installation step failed"
On the console i can see following messages

Network install ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 12, 2009
I got a spare box sitting around and I decided to install ubuntu on it, I fetched the ISO but alas - I have no burner available.
I was wondering if it's possible to make a network install for ubuntu ? (are there any more possibilities beside that ?)
Ubuntu 13 server network install fails at "Install the system"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2013
I'm doing an install from ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso with PXE boot and http mirror. However, it fails at the "Install the system step". I've tried this from VMWare (both server and client) and in real machines (again, both real machines in a LAN), so it's not likely to be a HW issue. Any suggestions?
* DHCP, TFTP with dnsmasq. Serves the netinstall ISO for Ubuntu 13
* Apache2 servs the contents of ubuntu-13.04-server-amd64.iso thru the network
* Expert install
* Client machine boots up from network, detects the mirror, downloads installation packets perfectly, and then, at the "Install the system", fails with this message:
"An installation step failed. You can try to run the failing item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step is: Install the system"
* Going to the virtual console 4, I get:
INFO: Menu item 'live-installer' selected --> Notice I selected "normal", not "live"
Ubuntu network install using eth1 wireless network detection failed!

What should I do now... How should I install Ubuntu from the network??
Thanks for any help!
Ubuntu floppy based network install.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 10, 2005
I have a laptop that has no cd drive, and a floppy drive that is externally connectable, it can however boot from it.
Are there any images that will allow a network install?
Or can I use a tcp/ip boot disc, map a network drive then install from there, if so what tcp/ip disc would you recommend?
Network install to Ubuntu 9.04 base system?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 8, 2010
Because of what I assume to be some idiosyncrasy in my DVD ROM, everytime I try to reinstall Ubuntu or anything Ubuntu-based, I get an error message saying:
The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:
[errno 5] Input/output error
That has happened with untold numbers of Ubuntu, Kubntu, Xubuntu, UE, Linux Mint, and Debian live CDs. I haven't been able to get Fedora to install, either. PCLinuxOS and openSUSE, however, do install (though one of the global moderators at openSUSE Forums thought that since I have less than one GiB of RAM, openSUSE shouldn't have installed I attribute the success to two processors).
I eventually learned how to get Ubuntu installed on my computer. I use an Ubuntu 9.04 alternative CD (not live as they automatically abort when they come to the input/output error message, leaving a broken system written to disk) to install the base system and grub. It allows me skip over software installation which is wher
Build mini.iso bootable USB to perform network install?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 10, 2010
There are several articles about this and I'm a bit confused because it's hard to tell if they involve downloading a full Ubuntu on a USB keydrive or not.
Under XPSP3, I'd like to build a bootable USB keydrive that will let me install Ubuntu onto a hard-disk through a network install, ie. the USB keydrive will just contain mini.iso and fetch what it needs from a remote server on the Net before installing everything on the hard-disk.
This article assumes the user has a working Linux workstation to build the USB keydrive, so that won't work for me.
If you know of a good, recent, no-brainer HOWTO on how to get going, please point me in the right direction.
Fedora F17 Install Problem No Bootloader
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2012
Originally I had Win7 and Xubuntu Installed on my HP Laptop. I decided I didn't want Xubuntu anymore so I installed Fedora F17 (First I tried Mageia, didnt work then Fedora). I installed F17 to a flash drive with rufus. I was able to install everything but at the end it said
"There was an error installing bootloader, the system may not boot"
So now as it said, my system does not boot and I cannot access my Windows or Linux. It just hangs at the HP startup screen that says Press ESC for options.
So I figure I need to reinstall my bootloader or something along those lines. I am not completly sure how to though. I have used this program to display my disk information. Can anyone here help me and let me know how to set this up right to get my system back up and working please.

[SOLVED] Fedora 19 install hangs while installing bootloader
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2013
I am trying to do a clean install of Fedora 19 x86_64 to a disc which has Fedora 17 installed. I alternate between two 500 GB discs for each release.
I chose to repeat the fc17 partitioning scheme, 524MB /boot, 442GB /home, 47GB /, and swap.
The install goes OK until it reports "installing bootloader", which never ends...or for 30-40 mins, I haven't waited longer before forcing a poweroff.
The Fedora 19 iso checksums OK.
I see a bug reporting this behaviour, but the fix appears to require much more than ordinary user knowledge, and wasn't explained.
Can someone please detail, for an ordinary user, how to solve this?
RHEL 6 Network Install?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2010
I noticed that RHEL 6 now has a network boot ISO which appears to be 222 MB. I downloaded this and attempted to install but when I am at the 'Installation Method' section, I don't know the URL to use. I contacted Red Hat and they advised me they don't host that on their site and that I would need to find a 3rd party mirror.
Anyone know how I can get a list of URL's that are hosting 'netinst' for RHEL 6 (64-bit)?
