Xubuntu nightly ISOs use the non-PAE kernel, but no hd-media image is available for that

Bug Description

This may have been an issue since at least the 11.10 series: it is rare I find an hd-media installer + alternate i386 ISO combination, that can successfully load an Xubuntu preseed installation. ISOs have had the generic, but not the PAE, kernel: so the installer gets a "No kernel modules were found" error.

"d-i base-installer/kernel/override-image" and "d-i base-installer/kernel/image" seem to have no effect in preseed of avoiding use of the PAE kernel, or the error.

HD-media source: "dists/precise/main/installer-i386/20101020ubuntu130/images/hd-media/" on any Ubuntu Linux mirror

Current ISO source: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/daily/current/

Sounds like the right answer here is to generate a non-PAE variant of hd-media.

Non-PAE installer appears to work with latest ISO. Props to everyone involved for getting this fixed.
