Minimal unattended bionic install failed to get path to preseed file

Asked by Mussie Sirak on 2019-10-17

My txt.cfg configuration is as follows:-
DEFAULT install
LABEL install
  MENU LABEL ^Install Ubuntu Mini
  kernel linux
  timeout 1 #10 = 1sec
  append file=/cdrom/custompreseed.cfg netcfg/choose_interface=auto pkgsel/language-pack-patterns=en pkgsel/install-language-support=true auto=true priority=critical vga=788 initrd=/initrd.gz noprompt quiet ---

But it's unable to see the preseed file, and falls back to default questions. Here I am booting using USB-drive.

Do you need:
preseed/file/checksum=

As per:
https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/s390x/apbs02.html

May help. I don't use preseed myself but can find stuff online. Maybe someone with preseed experience can chime in.

Did you check YouTube for guides?

No I don't need a preseed file, just need the installer to find it during minimal installation. I found a work around for it in this:

This solved my issue. Thanks for your replay.
