Bug Description

Quantal server iso's 20120911 i386 and amd64

 Both amd64 and i386 fail on a vm to install and go into a loop of complaining 'Unclean target file system' -> Installing the system (goes upto 'running partman-md') -> Ubuntu Installer main menu.

The following jenkins job faces the same issue,

This bug was fixed in the package base-installer - 1.122ubuntu11

---------------
base-installer (1.122ubuntu11) quantal; urgency=low

  * Move debconf templates relating to kernel installation from
    bootstrap-base to base-installer (LP: #1049011).
  * Allow live-installer to override the title template used by kernel
    installation code.

---------------
live-installer (36ubuntu6) quantal; urgency=low

  * Override the title template used by base-installer's kernel installation
    code. Requires base-installer 1.122ubuntu11.
  * Don't try to copy the kernel image from the CD if the squashfs doesn't
    contain a kernel package (LP: #1049011).
