I built an Ubuntu 16.04 installation image. It reliably installs unattended on real computers--no preseed file, no human input.

When I try to install this image in a KVM/qemu virtual machine, I must provide a preseed file with a surprising amount of detail: locale, user details, partitioning.

How do I get virt-install to install the image on a virtual machine in the same manner as real machines?

  • How did you make an installation image which "installs unattended on real computers"? – Michael Hampton Aug 21 '18 at 13:48
