Bug Description

Kernel: 4.4.0-21.37 (xenial)

Installer fails to detect the XGBE network interface on AMD Overdrive, making it impossible to proceed with the network installer.

Checking the kernel udeb modules, we're missing amd-xgbe as part of nic-modules.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1597573

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

tags: added: verification-needed-xenial

Not sure if my opinion on yakkety is sufficient, but the patch fixes the problem on my end. Current build of mini.iso detects the network interfaces just fine.
