I don't think this can be done with an OpenStack API. Try specifying a volume as root disk, installing Ubuntu on it, deleting the server and launching a new server from that volume.

Or try snapshotting the server at the end of the installation, then launch a new server from the snapshot.

When installing from ISO you have to attach an additional empty volume to the new instance. During the installation process you have to select the attached volume as target. After the installation process has finished and the instance reboots you should at least have the choice to install again (because the ISO is still attached) or boot from disk. Then you simply delete the instance, the volume should remain (that is the default). Now you can select that volume as a source for a new instance or you first upload the volume as a glance image and launch your instance from that fresh base image. Your comments suggest that you didn't attach an additional volume during the installation process.
