C7 Installer Boot fails

Post by koffeiniker » 2020/08/06 02:00:59

I just built this system:
Gigabyte B450M, 16GB, AMD Ryzen3 3200G, several disks
I downloaded the actual CentOS 7 installer (full, 10GB) and flashed this to USB using baleaEtcher.

Booting the stick works as far as the boot menu. Selecting install, I get to see the kernel starting, the usual 4 pengiuns and about a dozen log lines before the screen blanks and I see nothing: dead!

Using the fallback in the troubleshooting menu seems to work.

I assume it is the 3200G Picasso with its APU causing the problem.

What boot prompt options would possibly help be out of this problem?

Best regards!

Use the basic video option in the Troubleshooting menu to get installed then fix the problem once the system is up and running and you have more diagnostic tools available.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
