Hi RikT,

The beta test is more to test the network and connectivity of our new data centre, not just the functionality of the servers themselves, it will be added in time of course, but we don't feel these services require testing since they've been operational for some time.

It's BETA. I'm sure they'll add it soon.

I completely misunderstood, sorry - mixed up vKVM with VKS, too many abbreviations. It still wouldn't work with a netinstall, because the VKVM is a virtual environment - the only thing that is "real" is the HDD. So during install, it would use the drivers for the "virtual" peripherals it sees (network, CPU), which are different once you reboot your actual server (and this means you can't access it, because it has the incorrect network drivers).

You can do disk repartitioning via a NetRescue mode, but not sure if this is available for the beta servers as well. And it can be a bit involved, tbh.

What do you mean by "stock"? if you're talking in terms of the kernel, this cannot be done as the vKVM is OpenVZ based (it shares the same kernel as the host system - and that kernel has TUN/TAP as well as NFS disabled, latter of which is a bit naff, if you'd ask me).

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas if and how to install a clean stock version of debian through vkvm as it doesnt seem that on the beta servers we can set partitions up in the new manager hopefully thats gonna be fixed and the debootstrap way doesnt seem to work so vkvm seems my only option but not at all sure how to do it or if it can be done.
Thanks for any help in advance
