I am having some issues trying to assign a static IP address on installation (I know it can be changed after installation) as it seems that the installation screen are first asking for netmask in the format xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xx and then an ip address . I will see if I can capture a screen as a picture might help explain better
So sorry just re-read and its the ip subnet first not netmask …
