Centros 7 Installation Problems

Postby Jarliesr » 29. Jul 2019, 14:34

I am tried to install Centros 7 but at the Installation screen I cannot press some buttons only the "done" button at the upperleft corner. With that I cannot configure manually some parameters such as DNS. Another example is the keyboard as I cannot choose UK keyboard and have to choose english(uk) as the OS language.

As I am keep clicking and typing to see what work I discover when you type some letters it appear on the button that does not work.

I do manage to install Centros 7 but now I have to configure some parameters in Terminal among other things.

In case you are wondering why not try other LInux like ubuntu. I have manual in installation of the program that I trying to install only cover centros 7 and I search for installation in ubuntu and it is outdated at best. While it might be possible with experimentation and research that require a lot of time.

No, I'm actually wondering why you're looking for CentOS support on a VirtualBox site. It should be obvious that the effect of clicking certain locations on the screen is not dictated by hardware, it's a guest software user interface thing.

Because installation of Centros 7 is fine in VMware which suggest the problem lies somewhere in virtualbox. I did not choose that since I also need VM of Ubuntu and I am only familiar with networking within Virtualbox. Also I have trouble installing Ubuntu there while I can install ubuntu in virtualbox.

I am also curious if I am the only one having problems. If I am the only one then it would have to be a hardware issue on my part.

Can you please tell me which exact CentOS 7 are you trying to install? Are you trying CentOS 7.6 (1810) i.e. "CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1810.iso"?

Also, I'm going to need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
