    You’ve probably realised, but you’re the first result on search engines for “centos 6 netinstall“.

    Which is very helpful! Thanks

    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, I couldn’t get mirror.centos.org to work but once I put in the IP it worked great!

    Extremely helpful! Million times better than installing using a bootable usb (6.2).

    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…
    See you.

    works perfect as documented !
    I use to burn a DVD — this is much quicker and I only kill a
    cheap CD.

    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 very much indeed.
    I was pulling my hair out for ages on this one!
