If you find out how, let me know, because ever since early alpha gutsy's, I cant do it.
I remember trying to do it on those alpha gutsy's isos, and got all those framebuffer problems, and couldn't finish my install.
I tried again on hardy alpha isos, but the hd-boot installer was unable to find the iso, even though it was on the root a specially prepared partition.
