If you don't mind running Ubuntu I've got a preseed that creates a
RAID1 and installs Ubuntu 14.04.1, updates the OS, does some
configuration. The installer also installs the prerequisites for the
AD DC and downloads the sources. If you are more interested in Samba
file- and printserver capabilites, the installer downloads a Shell
script that installs Sernet Samba. With some minor editing you can, of
course, install the AD DC from Sernet.

The drawback, for the moment, is that it creates one (1) big mirror
(md) for boot+root and not using LVM. I think it should be fixed
before the release of Samba 4.2. It would be beneficial to make a
md/LVM-configuration as Samba 4.2 comes with the Snapper module.

If you find it interesting, please download syslinux.cfg
(http://www.datadilikatesser.se/pub/linux/dilibuntu/syslinux.cfg) and
replace the one that UNetBootIn provides when creating a install-USB.


Comments and improvements are most welcome. And I guess this isn't
material for this list.
