Since you need to install CentOS 7 on a physical machine for this course, you need to make bootable media. In this video, see how to create a bootable CentOS 7 USB drive on Windows.
- [Instructor] To install CentOS Linux 7 from the full DVD we need to download an ISO image from the CentOS website. Using a Windows PC, we'll do this by opening a web browser and browsing to the CentOS Linux download page at www.centos.org/download. When you get there, click DVD ISO, and choose a mirror close to you so it will download faster. If you don't know where any of these mirrors are, just randomly select one, and then click on Save. This DVD ISO image can be burned to an optical disc, or we can create a USB thumb drive from it.
To make a bootable CentOS 7 Linux USB thumb drive using Windows, we can use Win32 Disk Imager. While our CentOS 7 Linux ISO is downloading, let's browse to sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager. There are other tools on Windows I can burn an ISO image to a thumb drive, but Win32 Disk Imager works reliably, so I recommend it. Another one that works well is Rawrite32. Let's download Win32 Disk Imager, and install it. Click the Download button, and then click on Run.
Windows will run a security scan on it, which will probably fail. Click on Yes to install. Accept the License Agreement, and then click on Next. Click Next a couple more time, and then click on Install. I'm going to deselect viewing the README, and then click on Finish to run Win32 Disk Imager. At this point, we want to check on our CentOS 7 ISO image download by clicking on View downloads.
Through the use of movie magic, I'm going to fast forward until the image is downloaded. If your ISO image isn't downloaded yet, just pause the video until it is. Now that our ISO image is downloaded, and we have Win32 Disk Imager installed, let's insert our USB thumb drive and create the bootable disk. In the Win32 Disk Imager window, choose your CentOS 7 DVD image by browsing to it, and then click on Open. Under Device, I'll choose my inserted thumb drive.
Now click Write, and watch the progress bar. Once that's done, remove the thumb drive, and place it in the machine that you want to install CentOS 7 Linux on.
