CentOS 8 is not booting after install

Post by noone.exe » 2020/07/31 01:46:13

I have been trying to install CentOS 8 for some hours now, after multiple attempts the installation process went through, I got the message that CentOS has been installed correctly and that I should reboot to use it but after the reboot I couldn't get into CentOS.

I have tried installing from multiple iso but it hasn't worked yet. In the bios settings I can see that the first boot option is CentOS and it still doesn't work, I also tried to install CentOS 7 and that had the same problem.

I tried looking at the other posts from people that had the same problem and they suggest different installations I've tried the workstation option, the server with GUI and minimal installation option.

I am new to linux in general, does anyone know where to go from here?

What does it do instead?
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
