AFAIK, not on the website. You can generate all the preseed options for
yourself. Search the wiki for "preseed".



Brian, thanks for the reply.  I see that that would seem to work

In the end I veered towards the 'preseed' approach, partly because some guidelines I was following and which included the USB rewrite were based on that objective. My first try has failed to produce a bootable USB, but I'll do a lot more testing and checking before perhaps asking for any more help. I recall that there's recently been a long thread about preseeding which will be helpful, I think.

Isn't the boot device set in the BIOS? Perhaps your BIOS doesn't include a USB device in its selections?
