Netinstall does not see ISO image

Post by tetrahedron » 2020/06/05 13:32:07

I'm attempting to do netinstall of centos 7 on a virtualbox using windows 10.
Under storage i selected virtual optical drive and selected the downloaded CentOS-7-x86_64-NetInstall-2003.iso
When i start the machine and proceed with installation, it does NOT see the ISO file and asks me to input a mirror URL.
Am i selecting the wrong ISO?

Yes. The netinstall iso has no packages on it and requires a network accessible full mirror to download from.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
