Centos Install on HP Server hardware

Posted on 2011-10-28

I downloaded the 8 ISO's for the Centos 5.7 install.  Is there a way the server can boot to a USB drive that contains them for the install?

If yes, how do i do it?

    Easiest way for you is to just burn ISO's and install this way.

    Installing purely from USB is possible, but you will first have to use something like rescue media to first mount the USB to install your packages.  This would not easy.

    Just to keep the record straight, it is possible to do it using kickstart.  But preparing and configuring such a kickstart itself is a lot of work and pretty complex too.  The easiest way for you is to simply burn CD
