I'm trying to make a installation usb stick for a equipment we have here. I would like to automate linux installation, because we have a lot of these machines to install.

The machine has a 30GB SSD . I want preseed to use the entire disk to create an ext4 partition (mount point '/') and do not create a swap (it's a SSD, so no swap to avoid more read/write).

I read some blog's and articles on the internet where you define an expert_recipe to partman. But I wasn't able to find and option to say use the whole free space. There's the defaut option for partman but I believe (not sure of that) partman would create a swap partition.

How could I do that? Tell preseed to create a single partition using the entire disk and not create a swap partition ?
