Ubuntu Server: Kernel Configuration Considerations

you are using a preseed.cfg file right?

You want to have this in there:

# The kernel image (meta) package to be installed; "none" can be used if no
# kernel is to be installed.
#d-i base-installer/kernel/image linux-generic
d-i base-installer/kernel/override-image string linux-server

That is what picks which kernel is should be running I believe.

I have documented allot of the PXE boot stuff here:

As far as fixing it on each machine that is beyond my expertise but I
believe you would have to get the ubuntu server kernel...compile it
and then add it to your grub list.
Sorry if you are looking for a direct fix for each server.
