Welcome installation screen is not coming in centos i386 installation


Hi ,

I'm installing centos i386 in VM workstation 8. But the Welcome installation screen is not appearing to select language,time zone etc and starts installing the Centos 6.5 automatically. It is not giving me an option to create filesystem, everything it does automatically...
Is there any problem in OS or VM.

What is it doing? Anything, nothing, asking you whether you want to install BeOS?

Are you booting a live ISO by accident?

Hi ,

I'm not installing from Live CD. I downloaded the centos i386 ISO, from the ISO i'm installing the OS.

When i power on the virtual machine ISO loads and continue to install the operating system. It is not asking me to select language,key board language,time zone,even i'm not able to set the root password.

Yes, you already told us what it's not doing, so what is it doing? CentOS will not just install itself to your hard drive when you boot the iso, choosing its own root password and drive partitioning, so please tell us what it is doing.

As I recall the installer will ask you some questions then begin installation. During that process you have a screen in front of you and in order to change settings you do so there. That's about as much as my hazy recollection will tell me but I know that it's not obvious by any means that you make changes at that point.

the first thing to do is DOWNLOAD a supported version of Cent
6.5 is UNSUPPORTED

6.6 is currently the ONLY supported version in the 6 series

but when 6.7 comes out VERY SOON 6.6 will go end of life

All he has to do is run a yum update after installation to catch up to current, which is something he should be doing anyway and isn't a big deal...
