Centos 5.7 on HP BL 465c G6

Postby tovukman » 2012/04/02 20:31:54


I have issue while installing Centos on this blade. This is Centos configured with Kickstart.
Installation stuck while trying to perform default installation, also in Text-mode.
I tried with noprobe option but installation cannot find kickstart file (although file path is correct).

There is error message saying: cannot find (cdrom://ks/ks.cfg) but file is there.

DVD is not corrupted, installation stuck when probing keyboard layout (when not appending ks as boot option).

What to check now?

Many thanks in advance,

First, you should not be trying to install 5.7. The current/supported release is 5.8. If that fails to work I'd suggest trying CentOS-6.2 LiveCD or LiveDVD. That may at least enable you to provide more information about your system by running "./getinfo.sh" and showing us the output file, even if you do ultimately need to install CentOS-5.
