[SOLVED] Installation from USB key: .iso not found

Postby pschaff » 2012/04/12 15:33:59

There are a number of different approaches described on that Wiki page and it is in need of a serious rewrite. (I need to get a Round Tuit. ;-) )

Please describe exactly what you did.

Did you pick hard drive installation and specify the USB ext3 partition (probably /dev/sda2 if the boot device) as the source of the ISO image?

When you select hard drive installation the installer should ask you where the ISO image resides.

The installation image is the iso.

See the upstream docs - particularly #4 and 5. Looks like the /images needs to be on /dev/sda2.

Edit: I updated the CentOS-6 section of the HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey page to reflect the above. Any feedback on how to improve it appreciated.
