CentOS 5.7 Install Instructions (Hyper-V) For FOG

CentOS 5.7 Install Instructions (Hyper-V)
  1. Download the ISO of CentOS 5.7 to your Hyper-V server.
  2. Create a virtual server. *Remember, this VM is going to have all your computer images on them so plan hard drive size accordingly. I suggest at least 250GB or more.
  3. Before you boot the server, go into the VM settings. Remove the existing Network Adapter and add a Legacy Network Adapter. Adjust other VM settings as needed and then click OK.
  4. Boot the VM.
  5. Press Enter on the keyboard to install CentOS in a Graphical Interface.
  6. Skip the CD/DVD media test.
  7. Click Next or Alt + N if you are using a keyboard.
  8. Select the Language. English is the default. Click Next.
  9. Select the Keyboard Layout. US English is the default. Click Next.
  10. A warning will appear about the hard drive (hda) is unreadable and will be initialized. Click Yes (Alt + Y on keyboard).
  11. Click Next.
  12. Click Yes on the warning to remove all data.
  13. Network Settings. Click on Edit (Alt + E)
  14. Select Manual configuration and enter an IP address for the server. *Note: Prefix is the Subnet Mask. Clear the Check from Enable IPv6. Click OK
  15. Under Hostname, enter the name of the server. I suggest the school initials followed by “-FOG”. Then under Miscellaneous Settings, enter the Gateway and at least the Primary DNS. Click Next
  16. Select the Time Zone. America/New_York is the default.
  17. Enter a password for the root (administrator) user. Click Next.
  18. Select the additional software packages you would like to install. I suggest to not add or remove any additional software. Click Next.
  19. Click Next to begin the installation of the CentOS operating system.
  20. You will see screens similar to this one.
  21. Once the installation is finished, the system will eject the CD/DVD. (If you are installing CentOS on a physical machine, remove the CD/DVD.) Click Reboot.
  22. After the system reboots, some additional additional settings need to be configured. Click Forward (Alt + N on keyboard)
  23. Set the Firewall to Disabled. Click Forward.
  24. Click Yes on the warning that appears.
  25. Set SELinux to Disabled. Click Forward.
  26. Click Yes on the warning that appears.
  27. Set the Date and Time and Click Forward.
  28. Create a user. I suggest the username admin with the same password the root (administrator) user. Click Forward.
  29. Sound Card. Not Needed for a server. Click Forward.
  30. Configuration Complete. Click Finished.
