Hey guys! I am using this article to help me install CentOs: https://www.howtoforge.com/centos-7-server but I am having problems. I downloaded CentOs Minimal from here: https://www.centos.org/download/ . I get to where the install screen is and press enter. It brings me to a command line does some commands and then brings me to a command line I can control. It completely skips over the CentOs setup menu. Does it make I difference that I booted from a usb using CentOs minimal instead of using the CentOs dvd and booting from that? Help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys, im back, and I tried installing CentOs Everything from a usb stick and got the same result:
Heres some of the errors it gave me:

Warning: fractured-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts (This is repeated many times)

Starting Dracut Emergency Shell

Warning: /dev/root does not exist

Generating "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt"

Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue

Type "journalctl" to view the system logs.

You might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.

The keyboard doesn't work when on that screen and there is no cursor, if someone has a solution please help ASAP. Thanks!

Your implementation to usb boot install it is probably wrong linux sometimes can be tricky especially professional versions usually best bet is to install from cd to get no errors.

Iv personally had several instances with USB installs where i would get similar results and CD usually solved the issue.

if you dont want to burn a cd try this its more specific to the redhat flavor of linux http://iso2usb.sourceforge.net/
