    3. I was following the instructions here trying to install CentOS 5.6 but I got stuck at Step 9. It gives me a not found error. I read the readme and it says that 5.6 is already deprecated and should use vault.centos.org instead of mirror.centos.org

      So I used this values


      Server: vault.centos.org
      path: /5.6/os/x86_64/

      And it worked.

      Thanks for the tutorial

    4. First, thanks for taking the time to put this net-install tutorial together!! I needed to re-install CentOS 5, after getting part way into CentOS 6, and realizing the laptop I scrounged didn’t meet the PAE specs for 6. But, how do I get a network install to work? Google and I found your post.

      Only pointer I’d give is a similar one to Android VPN’s: the net-installs with mirror.centos.org blew out, with a not found error – different each time I tried it (!!) – and I remembered coming across a centos.org note about getting full downloads from the mirrors. Tried that – I used rackspace – and it worked like a charm.

      Thanks again.

      • Hi izwan,

        Booting from a disk with a GPT label requires EFI BIOS and an EFI-compatible boot loader. GRUB in CentOS 5 doesn’t support GPT or EFI.

        The old DOS partition table format is limited to <2TB disks/arrays. GPT is required for disks/arrays that are bigger than 2TB.

    6. Web site name:
      mirror.centos.org
      CentOS directory for i386:
      /centos-5/5.9/os/i386

    9. I am using ESXi 5.5
      It’s OK to create new VM and install CentOS 6.5 using netinstall.

      But when i tried to install CentOS 5.10 using netinstall, the installer asked me the network driver.

      Dont know why.

    10. I just ran into this issue myself. It looks like it was because my network card was using “VMXNET 3” for the adapter type, which it doesn’t seem to recognize. I removed that one and added one that was E1000 and it worked for me.
