Repackaging a centos install, it boots, but can't find centos to install.


I'm working a project and the centos 6.7 I'm using is talored for a bare bones command line only OS. I needed cdrecord and mkisofs and I'm able to install them, but need them to be on the install disk so the install includes them. I thought I could copy the install cd, drop the to RPM's into the packages folder and use mkisofs to create a bootable cd. Well it boot fine, it goes to a centos install screen, then after about five minutes a prompt comes up saying it couldn't find the centos install media. What am I missing?

You seem to be asking about a re-spin or custom version of an installer. The simple answer is you broke it. Somewhere in the rebuilding of the iso image or burn you changed how it works.

Some programs out there for centos and fedora to make them from a running system and other ways. Forget the popular one. Re.. something>

Might look at this. Should still work. http://www.smorgasbork.com/2012/01/0...t-disc-part-1/

This assumes I understand your question.
