Re: How old are you? How long have you used CentOS?

Yes, I am well aware of this prejudice. Going through HR would be like running into a brick wall. In my case, finding a job would have to be done in some other way. It's often through the people whom we know, that things happen. I know that there are many like me out there, in a similar situation.

Re: trouble creating bootable SD card

Thanks for this Trevor.
I ran the sha256sum on the .iso and they are identical.

Re: How old are you? How long have you used CentOS?

Glad there's still room on this earth for old people. I am new to Linux in General and CentOS is my latest addition. But I started out with the Sinclair ZX81 and later the Commodore 64. Basic, Pascal, C, C++ and Java. For many years (too many) I’ve pursued my musical talent professionally; it was su...

Re: trouble creating bootable SD card

I did:

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1810.iso of=/dev/sdb
I ended up receiving a confirmation that the number of bytes read was identical to the number of bytes written.
I couldn't find a published checksum for this .iso so I had nothing to check against.

Re: trouble creating bootable SD card

I repeated the same procedure with a USB. I now start up the computer and get a very short message reading:
No boot sector on USB device
After that the computer continues to boot from the HD as usual.

Re: trouble creating bootable SD card

I didn't even think that a computer with an SD card bay, will not be able to use it to boot.

Re: trouble creating bootable SD card

I have never booted from an SD card before. When I hit F2 after restart to enter the BIOS, I go to “boot sequence” and there I see the following:

Code: Select all

1. Diskette Drive
2. USB Storage Device
3. Internal HDD
4. CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive
   Onboard NIC
Does that mean that I cannot boot from an SD card?

trouble creating bootable SD card

Hi, I’m in the process of making a bootable SD card of CentOS 7. The SD card is 32 GB in size. I formated the SD card using (in LinuxMint 18.2 CLI): sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk0 and then: sudo dd if=CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1810.iso of=/dev/mmcblk0 Long time after that (I just went to sleep, so I don...
