-# be given in traditional non-devfs format.

-# For example, to use the first SCSI/SATA hard disk:
+# Use LVM and all available disk space
d-i partman-auto/disk string /dev/sda
-# In addition, you'll need to specify the method to use.
-# The presently available methods are: "regular", "lvm" and "crypto"

-# just point at it.
-#d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe_file string /hd-media/recipe
-
-# If not, you can put an entire recipe into the preconfiguration file in one
-# (logical) line. This example creates a small /boot partition, suitable
-# swap, and uses the rest of the space for the root partition:
-#d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe string \
-# boot-root :: \
-# 40 50 100 ext3 \
-# $primary{ } $bootable{ } \

-### Preseeding other packages
-# Depending on what software you choose to install, or if things go wrong
-# during the installation process, it's possible that other questions may
-# be asked. You can preseed those too, of course. To get a list of every
-# possible question that could be asked during an install, do an
-# installation, and then run these commands:
-# debconf-get-selections --installer > file
-# debconf-get-selections >> file
-
-
-#### Advanced options
-### Running custom commands during the installation
-# d-i preseeding is inherently not secure. Nothing in the installer checks
-# for attempts at buffer overflows or other exploits of the values of a
-# preconfiguration file like this one. Only use preconfiguration files from
-# trusted locations! To drive that home, and because it's generally useful,
-# here's a way to run any shell command you'd like inside the installer,
-# automatically.
-
-# This first command is run as early as possible, just after
-# preseeding is read.
-#d-i preseed/early_command string anna-install some-udeb
-
-# This command is run just before the install finishes, but when there is
-# still a usable /target directory. You can chroot to /target and use it
-# directly, or use the apt-install and in-target commands to easily install
-# packages and run commands in the target system.
