Re: Grub boot failure - install Centos 7.9

I have created a new USB boot key using the same method as above using
CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-2009.iso

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=/home/user1/Downloads/CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-2009.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k status=progress
on a lenovo running Ubuntu 20.4
