Re: Preseed and security packages during install

Well, the problem with netboot preseed is that it takes a mirror - and the official mirrors only have the latest on deb 7 and the latest on deb 6 unless I’m mistaken.
So even if I try to use a netboot from 7.4 I will still get 7.5 through the mirror and the install will fail to find the discs.

I just completed the install manually in this case through 7.4 ISO CD without issues, but it’s quite a hassle when you’re using to just pxe booting and getting it all served to you ;)
I’m used to CentOS where you can choose exactly which version you’d like to install from the repo using a network install.

Kind Regards,

I was recently bit by the bug listed here:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=746642 which
resulted in my new SATA drives not being recognized during a Debian
7.5 install.

Is there anyway to install 7.5 with my sata card without installing
7.4 from ISO first?  I’m using PXE-boot with the netinstall iso and a
preseed file.

The security packages are added AFTER the detection/partitioning of
disks so I’m unable to detect the drives.

Any idea how to solve it? Is it even possible? I’ve tried modifying
the netboot initrd and add firmware to it, but it seems that during
netboot it actually downloads the latest stable..

Imagine we weren't up to 7.5.0 yet. You would then be very happy with
7.4.0. The first thing you are going to do after installing anyway is
to upgrade, so it doesn't matter where the starting point is.

Or you could wait for 7.6.0. :)
