Install Media: trusty-server-amd64.iso (daily zsync 15-JAN-2014)
Host-OS: 14.04 Native Desktop + Updates
Guest-OS: 14.04 Minimal System & 14.04 Virtual Minimal System
Vbox: v4.3.2 from Ubuntu Repo

Note: From a fresh install perspective, these two are identical, with the
exception of picking Minimal System v.s. Virtual Minimal System. See "Whats The
Different Below" for more details.

** Install_Minimal_System
- Provide basic instruction for installation of Install Minimal System
- Perform two tests to validate the install:
--> Verify the install is able to update via apt-get
--> Verify the system can access tasksel

Actual updates & task installation was not performed.

** Install_Minimal_Virtual_Server
- Provide basic instruction for installation of Ubuntu Server (Minimal Install)
- Perform two tests to validate the install:
--> Verify the install is able to update via apt-get
--> Verify the system can access tasksel

Actual updates & task installation was not performed.

WHAT's THE DIFFERENCE
Basically, the virtual-minimal-system is optimized for working in a virtual
machine such as VirtualBox, VMWare, etc., with the biggests difference being
that of the Kernel itself. In the Virtual Kernel, things like Audio and SATA
drivers / modules are left out. For better performance in a Virtual Minimal
System, I've found the following to be useful changes to the Guest-VM settings:

-- Enable PAE/NX
-- Delete the SATA Controller and use SCSI Controller for the hard disk.
-- Enable host I/O cache.

Kernel Module Stats using lsmod:
14.04 Workstation VM-Host: 56 Modules
14.04 Minimal System" 25 Modules
14.04 Virtual-Minimal-System: 11 Modules

We could do Diff's on all three, but for the purpose of this bug, I believe
that's sufficient.
