Kernel of 12.04.3 LTS netinstall image too old

Bug #1250761 reported by Rainer König
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Testing new hardware with Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS.

Downloading ISO image and installing -> NICs work fine.

Trying to install from PXE using the Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS netinstall image -> No NICs detected


ISO Image installation provides Kernel 3.8.

PXE Image installation provides Kernel 3.2 which is not mature enough for new Intel NICs.

Why are the ISO image kernel and the netinstall kernel not in sync?

Since is now offering the possibility to load images with distinct kernels (which wasn't like that in November 2013) I assume that the problem is solved by using the netinstall image with kernel 3.11.
