6.4 64 bit Centos download

Post by newport_j » 2013/05/03 03:17:38

Where can I download a 64 bit copy of Centos 6.4. I am confused by all the options on the mirror sights.

Thanks in advance.

From the menu above, select Downloads -> Mirrors then click "Mirror list" then select your region from the top (it defaults to Canada/North America). Choose a mirror from the list where it says "Yes" in the column for direct DVD downloads then click the http link on the right hand side. Choose 6.4 from the directory, then isos then x86_64 then click on the CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso link there.

I want to download Centos 6.4 , 64 bit system onto a DVD or CD to install on my home computer. I know that *.iso
is a file name for imaging. I do not want a Live DVD version of Centos 6.4, the disk is for install only.
I just want to use it to install onto a system. I thought that Centos Linux was stored as something else, say tar files.

Also, can I make my computer which now has Windows XP into a dual boot computer with Windows XP and Centos 6.4.
I believe I have adequate drive space, I have done this on other Linux systems.

Thanks in advance.

CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso is the install DVD. The Live DVD is a) not yet available for 6.4 and b) has the word "Live" in its name.

I just wanted to make my Windows XP pc a dual boot computer with Linux as the other operating system. I have
easily done this when I installed the Ubuntu Linux and it offered this option. Can I do it with Centos 6.4 , 64 bit?

Thanks in advance.

Hi newport_j;

As already mentioned, the DVD you need to download and image in the virgin DVD is what you are looking for;
To make the dualboot, all what you need is new partition, then reboot the pc, in the options, choose to keep the old partition save, and you will have the dualboot working fine.

Thanks
