It is still too difficult to install Ubuntu Server, now that we should rely on the curtin installer.
See this link. The user had to make a detour via Ubuntu Desktop live to pre-format the drive in order to install Ubuntu Server. I have seen several similar cases.
Please make the curtin installer manage original partition tables within a wider range, so that the user need not pre-format with another tool.
I’m actually working on this right now!
Yes, I done most I know and still won’t get thru curtin-format 2 . I have successfully installed a ubuntu desktop, and I think I will take that route in so I can host a site thru my intranet. this is really frustration. It has error on ACPI something and i turned ACPI=off in grub, and still no go.
I have a Athlon processor, 8GM or ram 1TB of hard drive. What am I missing?
Has there been any progress on this? I have a bootable USB with Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS and am seeing the issue mentioned in this thread due to partition size. Where can I find the updates to this issue or should I go with the alternative route of pre-formatting the drive into reasonable partitions (I have no idea what I should set the OS partition to without trial and error).
