OK just to confirm: You downloaded the the DVD.iso, Correct? Again Do NOT Download the MINIMAL iso or whatever it is. Download the DVD.iso. From what you are describing it almost sounds like a throwback to yesteryear where up the Install appears in in RED SQUARE. In the NEW version you are offered 3 choices: Install, check or Troubleshoot. You highlight INSTALL and press Enter, and then it it runs through a quick check of your hardware, and then it dumps you into the graphic mode where it ask for Language, Keyboard, Timezone, etc. I am also assuming you are Downloading the 7.6 version of CentOS not pre-7.6macNCheeseB wrote: ↑2019/09/06 15:04:41I have a new download image and confirmed it installed on another machine, so image is good. I chose to use basic graphic mode installation and it got further than the other screen I showed, but still stops short of getting to the point where I can even start installation. See attached image for errors.
Second, Did you use UEFI or BIOS to do the install? Is your BIOS set to UEFI or BIOS?? You can tell as the difference between the two because on the initial page where is says Install, Check, or Troubleshoot ( I assume you choose Install) UEFI shows up in Grey to White whereas BIOS shows up in COLOR ( I think GREEN). IF you choose UEFI (the Grey to White) change it to BIOS (the COLOR version (Green, I think) and try doing the install again.
From the looks of your screen it *almost* looks like you are not even getting to the point where you actually start the install, rather the pre-install where it runs through the hardware, etc.
If you are still having problems do you know any guru near by who might be able to help you?!? It is very hard to diagnose your problem via a forum group message. This is where someone who is experienced with Linux Installations become a valuable resource, to do the install phase for you. If did NOT download the DVD.iso I can't help you; if you DID download the DVD.iso this is starting to look like a hardware issue. A lot of times you simply need to play around and try different things and combos. A good starting point is to change the BIOS from UEFI to Classic BIOS and install from Classic Hardware ( some BIOS's that allow both UEFI hardware and Classic Hardware. You need to Match the Hardware to the BIOS. UEFI Hardware shows the Device overlaid by "UEFI", Classic BIOS shows just the Naked Device). Windows by DEFAULT defaults to UEFI; Linux by contrast prefers Classic BIOS. Which you have requires a quick trip to the BIOS to confirm which version of BIOS you have, then it requires that you match the type of install to the device.
Assuming you Downloaded the DVD.iso, and followed our suggestions, it is time to locate you local Linux Guru to help with your install. Either you screwed something up, or you have a hardware problem.
Keep us posted. I'm curious (being a cat) what is the cause of your problems.
Hope this helps.
