Hi - I hope I'm in the right place; feel free to redirect me. I want to install on a KVM-based VPS, using an ordinary installer (ie not using the image provided).
I used the provider's method to provide an ISO, and supplied the standard amd64 netinst image - it boots fine, but can't find the 'cdrom' afterwards. They suggest the netinst image doesn't have the drivers for the KVM virtual cdrom - does that sound right? Are there alternative images that would? As an alternative, when I install on my own KVM server, I use virt-install, and provide it with the url of the installer, and from then on it proceeds without needing a CD or other local media. Is there a way I can boot that on the remote VPS? Perhaps from grub, or from a minimal ISO? Any other suggestions? Thanks, Richard
