If you’re not satisfied with the options the standard ubuntu installer provides you and want to more flexibility, e.g. installing on LVM and/or crypto devices, try yourself the hassle I had and do it this way: - get UNetBootIn - Attach the USB-Stick - Select “Ubuntu” -> “11.10_NetInstall_x64” - Boot the target system from the stick
Everything else, esp. using the HDMedia option does not work, as documented in several Bugreports. The NetInst Method in contrast seems to work pretty flawlessly.
