[WorksForMe] Installing CentOS 7:Keep getting failed, no medium

Postby Nolli » 5. Feb 2019, 05:06

As stated in the subject, I have MacBook pro with El Capitan and VirtualBox Version 5.2.26 r128414 (Qt5.6.3) and whenever I set up a VDI, make the selections in storage configuration to point the CentOS 7 ISO minimal 64bit, the boot process halted claiming no boot medium found...it's very fustrating indeed! Got the same exact output when I tried on my MacMini with Mojave.

If it says no bootable medium, it means it. Check your ISO, make sure it's not corrupted.

And please use the wizard if you're new to this whole endeavor. Make it work first, experiment later.

Thank you Socratis for responding...I am not new to virtualbox and I had downloaded both the minimal and everything CentOS 7 64bits and had checked using the checksum...I'll try again after downloading the OS.
