debian fully automatic install
I'm checking into starting up right into FAI from a CD (I do not intend to arrangement a PXE boot web server).
Is it feasible to have FAI boot from a CD and also make use of the mac address to establish what to install without needing to select from the dropdown?
What you desire is the "preseed" capability of Debian installer.
Basically, you create an arrangement documents with all installer inquiries addressed, make use of that documents to compile an unique kernel and also boot it (or you can create a CD ISO photo). Information in the Debian wiki (link over).
You'll need to create various preseed arrangement documents to set apart in between installments, I'm not accustomed to a means to set apart based upon MAC address of network tool.
