Preseed doesn't automatically select network interface on Ubuntu 14.04.3

Asked by christoffer flygare

I'm trying to setup several unattended Ubuntu Servers installation from PXE with version 14.04.3 but it gets stuck on the choose interface question, the choose_interface doesn't work automatically.
netcfg/choose_interface select auto doesnt work and it gets stuck on choose interface until I select the first interface.
I belvie that this is the same as Bug #855921 but that bug was reported in 2011 and must be solved by now?

if you use a kickstart file then you can specify the network interface thus:

network --bootproto=dhcp --device=eth0 --hostname

Can you help with this problem?
