Re: Remote upgrade headless server with businesscard ISO?
Well, debootstrap is great (totally awesome, really) for setting up a
chroot, but I'm not super sure how to pull the rug out from underneath
the old bootable OS installation and insert the new bootable chroot,
swap in the new kernel, etc.
Basically, if at all possible, I'd really like to just run the installer
and format away all the old partitions. Barring that, I agree the
debootstrap option might be the only feasible choice.

debtakeover looks pretty good, except it appears to be 4 years out of date
and not really working (according to other reports on this list).
Regardless, it doesn't do a totally clean install, so it's not exactly what
I'm looking for.
I think you need (c)debootstrap.
