Netboot Installers and Paravirtualized mode

For PV VPS's, at the end of the install either you must have the file (hd0,0)/boot/grub/menu.lst present to boot with grub legacy (pvgrub), or you must have a grub2 config file and switch to booting with grub 2. For more information on grub 2 see here.
Here are some notes on making your system bootable in PV mode:

  • CentOS 6 - no longer available for PV
  • CentOS 7 - switch to grub2 after install
  • CentOS 8 - not available for PV
  • Debian Jessie 8 - install pv-grub-menu or switch to grub2 after install
  • Fedora 29 - switch to grub2 after install
  • NetBSD 8.1
  • NetBSD 9.0
  • Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 - install pv-grub-menu or switch to grub2 after install
  • Ubuntu Eoan 19.10 - not available for PV
  • Ubuntu Trusty 14.04
  • Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 - install pv-grub-menu or switch to grub2 after install

Notes for Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 and Ubuntu Eoan 19.10

Ubuntu Bionic and Ubuntu Focal originally shipped with systemd-networkd. We have disabled it in our images, in favor of the ifupdown scheme used by many other supported distributions.

Additionally, as of May 26th 2019, our pre-built Ubuntu Bionic and Ubuntu Bionic with Docker preinstalled are built with a 5.0 kernel.
