Bug Description

[Workaround]

If you install while completely offline (do not connect WiFi, do not plug in network cable) then the bug doesn't happen. You can then connect in the installed system just fine.

[Impact]

 * Certain SKUs of laptops; when networking is enabled; complete the installation successfully, without installing any kernel on the system rendering it unbootable.

[Test Case]

 * Start install on a relevant SKU

 * Enable networking on

 * Ensure that after the installation kernel packages are installed in /target

 * Reboot to observe that installed

[Where problems could occur]

 * Hopefully we will not remove kernels again.... especially the one we want to boot.

[Other Info]

 * Original bug report

I was installing ubuntu on my fresh new notebook and found that kernel packages wasn't installed. As workaround to run the system I had to chroot into /target to complete installation.

I have one disk and it was partitioned as GPT.

Initialy I thought it was a problem with boot loader but I had installed debian without issue(except it not provide proper firmware).
Then I tried to boot into ubuntu from debian's grub and found that there are no kernels.

It took me 2 days(((

oem-qemu-meta

* To ensure this doesn't happen again, we must update the test oem-qemu-meta package to match the behaviour of the other similar packages in the oem archive.
