CentOS installation crash on Dell laptop

Post by ronbarak » 2020/08/28 21:13:59

I wanted to install CentOS 7.8 on a Dell Vostro laptop, but I get an OOps style crash, as soon as I chose the install option from the CentOS 7 Install USB.

Can something be done?

How did you create the memory stick?

I've installed at least 13 machines with the same USB, so I don't think there's a problem with the USB.

The CentOS iso behaves differently depending on whether the machine it is booting on is UEFI or Legacy BIOS. One can work and the other can be corrupted.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Seems all CentOS USB sticks with CentOS on them fail as soon as the installation starts, but RHEL 7.8 succeeds. See On same hardware, CentOS 7 installations fail while RHEL 7 installation succeed
