Thanks for the guide. I dont understand why the CentOS website doesnt have a
visual installation guide like yours.
One question Why in step #9 would you add another wired network adapter
instead of selecting the pre-created System eth0 and click the Edit button?
Reply
Ravi Saive says:
September 14, 2012 at 11:50 am
@Forrest yes you can select system eth0 to congure your network. and the
above example is just for further Ethernet and DNS conguration if you have
any.

Hi Forrest,
I dont understand why the CentOS website doesnt have a visual installation
guide like yours.
I thought is easy to answer:
Branded installation instructions and other documentation for starting out
well are available for releases through CentOS 5; after that, a license change
in upstream sources for this documentation presently rule out creation of
CentOS branded variants. http://wiki.centos.org
Reading your question once again shows my citation is probably not the exact
answer for your question, just related.
Have a nice day.

@Hassan,
Dont worry just connect to internet and install graphical interfaces KDE or
GNOME with YUM command. Login as root and run the following command.
For KDE
yum groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"
For GNOME
yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment"
If you dont have internet, then open the le /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-
Media.repo with vi editor, change the enabled=0 to enabled=1 and mount
the CentOS installation DVD under /media/cdrom/ and run the yum commands
again.
If you still having any problem, comment here.

Hi Ravi,
I had a VM with CentOS 6.3 installed in my PC (Windows on host). It had
gnome, and I wanted to use kde. I used yum groupinstall KDE. It had a
warning: no kde-desktop package available. Although this installed
many kde features but still didnt have the option to change to kde (no
such option during login session. When I tried KDE at prompt it replied:
no such command). I then found this site and used yum groupinstall X
Window System KDE. I restarted my VM and looks like it started the
boot process and then goes blackprobably some conict. Any
help/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
thank you for your help.
I have just to notice that i use vmware player, and the problem of connectoing VM
to the physical machine is causing (in part) the choice of the type of virtual
connection between the VM and the physical network.
So, how can i mount the device : cdrom, if im using the VM?
Thank you.

If you are using VMWare, you could add it in as a device from VMWare
Workstation Manager and it will appear as one of the devices if you double
click the Computer icon in your GUI.

Download and run the CentOS-6.3-x##_##-netinstall.iso, and eventually youll
have an option to install from several sources, choose DVD, The installer looks for
CentOS-6.3-x##_##-bin-DVD1.iso in the DVD. What a PITA, I dont like the extra

2- What is the use of Disk 2 iso image that is provided?

The download links are already provided in the article. If you are looking for

the one.

Nada, I ran into the same issue in a VM. I gave the VM 512MB by
default, but the installer requires minimal 652MB ram on the guest
in order to do GUI install. I adjusted the VM with this minimum req ,
reran the install and was able to install via GUI.

I installed centos 6.3 on a Lenovo H525s core i5 3GHz, 4GB RAM and 500 GB Win
8 Desktop by creating 146 GB partition. The bios supports UEFI. After installation
when I restart the system it always goes to windows only. The GRUB boot loader is
not able to see the linux part. When I searched the forums many are saying it is due
to MBR / GPT / UEFI incombatibility. If that is the case then I may have to add
GRUB 2 support. Where can I get GRUB 2 inclded centos 6.3 distribution. My
second query is since i am not able to boot into Linux directly I used rescue mode
and am able to get into linux command mode. From there if I trype startx it goes
into GUI mode but my keyboard and mouse hangs. Could any one suggest me steps
to x any of these issues. Thanks a lot for any help.

Short answer Solution for Lenono desktop could not be found. No
success yet. Long answer Try the following ifyou have time:
1. There is a Centos 6.3 minimal install with Grub2 support at least that
is what the website mentioned. This supports few hardware platforms. If

you could download and install and if that works for your platform then
you should be ne. It did not work for my HW platform.
2. GRUB2 source code is available for download. If you could compile and
integrate with Centos 3 it might work. Again it did not work for me.
3. Create three partitions. One with Windows, another one with Centos
6.3 and third one (may be small one) with Fedora latest release (which
already has support for Grub2). If using Fedora your system is able to
accept the hardware and if you could see boot option then you can modify
by it to point to centos as well. This I did not have time to check
completely. You can try and see for your self.
4. Last option is wait for Centos 6.4 with Grub2 full support. I do not
know when.
Sorry I could not be of much help.

You mean, you have dual boot environment where you like to install CentOS
with windows. If yes, then rst allocate a drive with free space and then install
the centos on that free space drive.

Thanks in advance,

rstly, must you have selected minimal packages during
installation, so you get less les in /etc. If you want to install
other packages you can use yum command to install it. If you
not aware of yum, you can take look at the yum guide.

Hey thanks for this tutorial. Will it apply for version 6? The part the confused me a
little was the wired tab. Im not sure if we need that. We need our set up to be
used to format hard drives with Linux for Digital Cinema distribution and it will
have a a CRU dock attached with a eSata connection to be used as a network drive.
Its a new machine and already has 7 32bit installed on it. Should we keep that on a
parition? It will not be connected to the internet, only by the network to my DCP
creation machine. We will be loading, or loading content to or from a hard drive in
the CRU slot. Whats you opinion on how we should install?

I am trying to download centos 6.3 from mirror web sites. However the directory is
empty and it refers to the latest version 6 which is 6.4. Is version 6.3 deprecated
and it is encouraged to use version 6.4 ? I am new to centos and I was a bit
surprised that point releases are deprecated so fast.
Here is a web site example:
