Centos 5 Install Trouble


I am having some trouble installing CentOS 5 on a Dell Poweredge T110 II. Every time I run the ISO I get an error that the kickstart file can not be downloaded. Any ideas on what is wrong or how I can get it running? I am new to Linux so please be gentle.

CentOS5 is kind of "old". CentOS6.3 is out.
Are you having trouble downloading or burning/booting the burned image?

Please let us know...

Its actually a SipXecs software which runs CentOS 5. I have the ISO CD and I have used it before on other installs so I know that it is a good image CD. The trouble I am having is getting the image to run and install on the Dell T110 II.

Does the system meet these requirements?

Hi tomlaino,

Mostly kickstart(unattended operating system installation) files are used for Network based Installations like PXE booting.

You can find more info about kickstart here

Please check your boot order(or priority) in your BIOS.
If your Dell system is having "Network Booting" as first option. Change it to "CD-ROM or DVD-ROM" and try.

Note: Please mark this post as Helpful,if it helps you.

Turns out my problem was hardware. CentOS 5 was not compatible with the Intel Celeron processor in the Dell T110 II. I did an ISO install of CentOS 6 and had no issues at all. Thanks all for your help.
