Installing Ubuntu 11.10+ alternate via USB


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.
