    How to reinstall CentOS using DRAC 5?

    I need step-by-step instructions.

    Particularly, how would I mount the ISO to the virtual drive? I only have KVM access to it but after logging in, there are no Internet access.

    And I see CentOS ISO have like 1 of 8, 2 or 8, etc. do I need all of them or just the 1st one?

    Not sure what you mean by no internet access, however use the centos net install disk and then install via HTTP from a mirror.

    Good luck

    The network card is not working, bad drivers or something, so no Internet. I can only use the virtual drive.

    So any one have any instructions for install?

    Mount the CentOS netinstall iso

    Then once it boots, choose Install from HTTP. Find a CentOS mirror and input the address and folder.

    It will install the proper drivers during the initial boot process.

    Depending on the DC, they may have a local mirror and it will install very fast.

    We install CentOS in under 10 mins regularly using our private mirror.
