CentOS 6 x86_64 Live CD doesn't work at all!
 
Hi guys,
I recently downloaded CentOS-6.0-x86_64-LiveCD.iso and it doesn't work! I mean after boot menu, it will stop working. Tried pressing Space during the reverse counter and select all the options. None of them works except the memtest option which just tests memory.
Is it really working? I mean anyone tested CentOS 6 the x86_64 bit version?
Thanks a lot:)

Hi there,

Did you check the checksum of the liveCD that you have downloaded?

When you say that none of the options work other than memtest I would like to know if you get any error message when you select them or just a blank screen.

What is the specification of your system on which you are trying to install.

Pressed Space after that counter, then tab to edit the default boot option. Removed quiet from the line and booted. It came up until it wrote:
Code:

no root device found. Sleeping forever!
I have no Idea what to do! I'm installing it from a USB drive.

Have a look at the following link: http://www.linuxreaders.com/2010/05/...ice-found-fix/

Though it is related to F12/F13 but it does make sense. That is the reason I asked you about system specs.
