HiI've installed Centos 6.3, only to find that after POST, GRUB acts as if the centos install doesn't exist. Centos is certainly there on the 26G hdd partition. I instal... [by Tabby]
I recently download centos 6.4 minimal 1386 from http://centos.mirror.net.in/centos/6.4/isos/i386/ and installed it on my old Pentium4 32 bit machine at home. It has got one 80gb HDD and splited into 3 partitons. Two of them are ntfs filesystem consist of Windows XP present in them since long before. I made the third partition to ext4 and installed centos 6.4 in it.
I recently partitioned my hardrive to install ubuntu alongside windows. I then went to install centos over ubuntu. After this second installiation, even after specifying where centos should be installed i could not boot off windows. I then went back to install ubuntu off centos to try to recover the grub menu.
Currently setting up a new computer that will run Centos 6.4 and Fedora 19.
Which distro should I install first, or doesn't that matter? I see that Centos uses Grub while Fedora uses Grub2. Might it be a good idea to install Centos first, and then when I install Fedora Grub will be upgraded?
I've been trying several combinations of OSX, CentOS to try and get CentOS
installed on an old iMac. I finally first installed OS X, then installed
CentOS in the open space after OS X. With refit installed and selecting
CentOS, it starts booting but get a screen that a boot device can't e
found. So I then install Xubuntu with the option to replace OS X.
