Kernel panic - not syncing :Attempted to kill init!

Post by bowbth » 2018/04/26 09:25:08

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to install fresh Centos 6.9 (64 bit) by using iso image from
http://mirror.btechcloud.com/centos/6.9/isos/x86_64/
(chose 64 bit name dvd.iso ,size 1.9 G)

However, when boot the system by usbbootable (create from Rufus) the warning show like this.

(Former OS is Centos7 but I have to work with some tool that only supported in version 6)

What should I do?

Thanks

1.9GB? Mine is 3.9GB.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3972005888 Mar 28 2017 CentOS-6.9-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso

Check its sha256sum against the list published in the release notes : https://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/Release ... 12ac0d46dc

I'd also advise against using Rufus as some combinations of its options can lead to it corrupting the iso image as it copies it over. Easiest way to do it is to just dd the iso file to the usb device.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
