I am wanting to do a headless install from a USB stick via VNC.
What i am trying to do is plug a network and power cable into a new server, plug in a USB key with CentOS 6.3 on it, turn on the power and then connect to it via VNC from another computer to do the CentOS installation.
I add the following to the isolinux.cfg
menu label ^Install or upgrade via VNC
append initrd=initrd.img vnc headless ip=dhcp ksdevice=eth0 lang=en_US keymap=us
which takes care of the langauge and keyboard questions, however i get asked about the INSTALLATION METHOD, where is asks LOCAL CD/DVD, HARD DRIVE, NFS DIRECTORY or URL.
I want to use the USB stick to install from, so how do i do this ?
If i manually select /DEV/SDB1 and /IMAGES/INSTALL.IMG it works fine.
I have tried:
but I still get asked the INSTALLATION METHOD question.
Another problem i wonder might happen is that if i use a different USB port it will want a different dev name (eg /dev/sdb2), is there a way around this ?
Thanks in advance for any help.
