I have a PC with no option for a keyboard. I have to install the operating systems without a keyboard or mouse.
I have to make a bootable USB stick which can allow me to connect to the PC from my Laptop with a VNC connection, then the complete installation using IP to IP. I did this with the following:
Extract the files of .iso to my laptop
Add the manual file in CentOS-6.0-i386-minimal/isolinux/ks.cfg
install lang en_US.UTF-8 keyboard us timezone --utc Europe/Brussels rootpw --iscrypted $6$i5qEWD. selinux --disabled authconfig --enableshadow --passalgo=sha512 firewall --service=ssh bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda --append="rhgb quiet" vnc --password=1234 network --bootproto=static --ip=192.168.1.125 --netmask=255.255.255.0 --gateway=192.168.1.1 --nameserver=192.168.1.1
Copy and paste all files on my laptop to the USB stick
Unplug my USB and connect to the target PC
However it never boots to the USB, and then I checked the USB in my laptop, which is also the same as it's not yet a bootable USB
Any ideas how to fix this?
Note: I have followed:
yum -y install unetbootin.i686
This allows me to write the iso file to USB, disk or CD
mkisofs -o /tmp/cd.iso /home/sun/Downloads/centos/
This allows you to modify your original iso files with the new contents and pack it as one .iso file
- Finally load unetbootin and burn to your USB or disk or CD
It works great now!
