XenServer: Install Ubuntu Linux From ISO

Download the Ubuntu ISO
Start by downloading the ISO so it’s ready when you want to install

Setup an ISO Share
If you don’t already have one you need a share on which to put your OS and other ISOs.
  1. On a local server setup a shared directory so it’s available on the LAN like \\[Server name]\[Share name]\
  2. In XenCenter start the “New SR” wizard and choose Windows FileSharing or NFS ISO as appropriate.
  3. Enter the share name and Finish.
  4. If you go to the Storage tab on on of the VMs you should see a dropdown with DVDDrive1: and your ISO share and all ISOs should be visible in there.

Progress through the installation as normal you may like to refer to my previous post “Installing Debian as a Web Server” for more information.
