Ubuntu on-disk installer

Asked by Shih-Yuan Lee on 2012-11-05

This is a feature request.

Current Ubuntu desktop image has different modes when pressing F4.

1. Normal
2. Use driver update disc
3. OEM install (for manufacturers)

Could we add a new mode called "Ubuntu on-disk installer" or other wording?

The difference between "Ubuntu on-disk installer" and "OEM install (for manufacturers)" is that "Ubuntu on-disk installer" will transfer Ubuntu desktop image and install it to the first partition by default (can be preseeded with other value).
And "Ubuntu on-disk installer" will install a little application to make the end users able to trigger "Ubuntu on-disk installer" from their desktop environment to reinstall and overwrite the existing Ubuntu system without Ubuntu desktop image.
