Bug Description

With oem-config 2.10.2 using preseed to automate installation, I am unable to set the hostname via dhcp as I am in netboot. Netboot uses "d-i netcfg/get_hostname string unassigned-hostname" and "d-i netcfg/get_domain string unassigned-domain" to determine the hostname & domain during preseed installation, and works well on all architectures in my network (amd64, i386, armel, armhf). oem-config should be able to use the same mechanism or something similar.

Ran into this myself. Only appears to occur on preinstall server images.
