The netinstall method has changed for CentOS 6. Use the following URLs to install via the netinstall iso:
32 bit: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/i386/
64 bit: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/
Thans man i really needed this.
First time ever getting the net install to work. Clear and concise. Thanks for the info.
Really clear and concise post. Thanks a lot Scott!!
You’ve probably realised, but you’re the first result on search engines for “centos 6 netinstall“.
Which is very helpful! Thanks
duckduckgo FTW! Thanks glad this article helps,
Thanks for this as the above posters have stated number 1 result on search engines.
Great article. Thx
If the above URL doesn’t work for you, try
as this works for me. Hope it helps others who might encounter the same problem as I did.
thanks Cecelia ;]
Thanks! It is working great!
Is there a way to preload the URL string? I.e. like appending the initrd parameter to the kernel?
If you’re at the console installing, it’s easy to mistype the url, if it can be remembered at all…. surely there must be a more user-friendly way to manage this?
Thanks , Cecelia !
It’s work !!
Thanks Cecelia, I couldn’t get mirror.centos.org to work but once I put in the IP it worked great!
Thanks for the tip! Glad google had your great working link as #1!
The URL nor IP addresses work for me.
don’t work with this URL
work for me with http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/
it should exist a better solution than that
Extremely helpful! Million times better than installing using a bootable usb (6.2).
Fantastic, Worked really well keep up the good work
Thanks a lot.
Clear and direct (concise), i have experience with Debian netinstall process and it’s almost the same, just write the url in the field… (choose a server from the list for Debian)
Downloading packages right now…
works perfect as documented !
I use to burn a DVD — this is much quicker and I only kill a
why there is not the prefilled link in this install, 98% of people are using the default value …
Thanks for this post and Cecelia
I assume the mirror.centos.org does not work in the case of static IP set since it does not ask for DNS server… took me 45 minutes to figure that out and come here
Thanks! Just what I was looking for.
