Robert where are you specifying the filesystem.squashfs file? In the
Are you providing any other options in the ks file to enable the proxy
there as well?
I still get the same error, (prefixed with /cdrom) even with inserting
the http_proxy option. I can confirm it uses the proxy to pull the
kickstart file, then the rest of the install is pulled without use of

PXE install prefixes /cdrom to squashfs location, fails to find it
Status in live-installer package in Ubuntu:
Attempting to use PXE to install 16.04 results in an error dialog that
states "The failing step is: Install the system". Checking syslog
shows that it has prefixed the URL to the filesystem.squashfs with
"/cdrom" and failed to find the file.
base-installer: info: Downloading
Setting the path to the filesystem.squashfs by either the "append"
option in the PXE default file, or as a preseed option in the
kickstart file both have the same result.
My PXE menu option:
LABEL Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop
MENU LABEL Xenial 16.04 Desktop
append vga=normal ks=http://192.168.1.251/ks-1604-64-desktop.cfg initrd=1604/ubuntu-installer/amd64/initrd.gz live-installer/net-image=http://192.168.1.251/ubuntu-1604.amd64/install/filesystem.squashfs biosdevname=0
I found a changelog for live-installer 51ubuntu1 dated 4/18/16 that
states it strips /cdrom/ prefix from all places, but this does not
appear to be happening. The log line points to base-installer rather
than live-installer as the cause.
This is from the 16.04 server release ISO, running base-installer_1.158ubuntu2_amd64 and live-installer_51ubuntu2_amd64
I would expect that locating the live-installer filesystem.squashfs
would not prefix the specified URL with /cdrom. Previous versions of
Ubuntu did not do this.
