Re: Virtualization

Oh cmon Trevor, if it was the host why would he bother giving you all that detail about windows server? Anyway, OP I think you should use fixed size rather than dynamic for that virtual machine. Dynamic disk is slow as well. I don't think this whole thing is surprising because Windows is known to ho...

[how to] Create Centos GPT UEFI-only bootable disk manually.

I know this looks pointless as you can already use dd=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdXY bs=446 count=1 to force uefi-only on any bootable disk. This command clears out MBR boot configuration while keeping partition table intact. Without boot sector no legacy boot basically. However, my hybrid EFI motherboard d...

Re: Centos 8 DVD boots on one computer but gets stuck on the other

No, the dvd works on other PC. For some reason it does not work on this PC. It's an old gigabyte hybrid efi motherboard. Not a shock that it's causing issues. It might as well be the old dvd drive not being supported by CentOS somehow. Ubuntu and Manjaro dvds work fine with it. The DVD drive was bei...

Re: Centos 8 DVD boots on one computer but gets stuck on the other

No i have 3 folders, i never managed to install CentOS.
I have:
BOOT
Manjaro
Microsoft.

I realised changing disk label does exactly what happens to me.
I now think this is somehow related to label.

Re: Boot order changes after installing with UEFI

After installing CentOS 7 (and presumably CentOS 8), boot order changes automatically to first boot from OS. It can only be reproduced with UEFI boot and in different hardware types. Why is this happening? How could it be avoided? Thank you Yeah that happens on some computers. That's an UEFI thing....

Deader than a doornail.

This place is like a wasteland. It's almost impossible to get any help here.
I know CentOS is pretty popular and it's being used on a large scale so how so?

Re: Centos 8 DVD boots on one computer but gets stuck on the other

I manually set inst stage2 entry to (hd0,msdos2)/images/installer.img but it still hangs up on the same place, does not complain about SCSI anymore though.

Re: Centos 8 DVD boots on one computer but gets stuck on the other

I think i've located the problem.

When i ls from grub on problematic pc with only the dvd drive plugged in:
(hd) (hd0,msdos2)
On the other working fine pc:
(cd) (cd0,msdos2)

Is hd for hard drives ? Can this be the root of this problem?
