if I tick custom storage I see this:

manual storage
I don't know how can I adjust each volumn, 25GB or 250GB should already large enougth for a CentOS to be install, right?

the points now, after centos SEEMS finsih installation and reboot, it should go to main OS UI screen for us to login, but it is not, it goes back to UI installation screen again and again !

OS installation screen
so this process NEVER finish

now I think I knows why evne I give the VM 25GB and the installation wizard shown me it has only few kb, it is because once the CentOS installation complete and it reboot , but it reboot to the installation wizard again, a lot of space has been toke up by previous installatoin.

So why the installation wizard start again after reboot? the setup process do not know how bypass it once reboot ?

Right click on the VM in Hyper-V Manager, Settings, Firmware:
Boot OrderMove Hard Drive to the top of the list.
Reboot the VM.
It should just work.

When the VM gets fired up it should boot from the optical/.ISO file.

Once the OS has finished booting setup is as usual.
